Any antiviral company supports in-the-wild delivery by the users.
Do you want to improve some antiviral company's product, or You need to be sure that files are viruses or false positive? If You want just to check them, there are some online virus checkers, where a number of antiviruses will check Your files at the same time, and will show to You detailed report.
try to use web search like this:

you can send samples to any of the AV companies for analysis.

e.g. samples@sophos.com

You will receive a swift response once the file has been analysed by a lab technician.
