Panel Pricing for Metals & VOC Price Cap

inding the Best Ways for You to Get Your Work Done

Panel Pricing for Metals, GC/FID VOC Price Cap, and GC/MS VOC panel pricing

We’re always looking for ways to enhance our clients’ experience by looking for solutions from all different perspectives: “How can we make it faster, easier, more precise and cost effective to help you get your work done?”


We recently introduced two new approaches to analyzing your samples that will save you money and time by batching your analyses. Our new “panel pricing” for compatible metals lets you custom-build your own panel, which is then analyzed in one sample.  We also now offer a pricing cap for VOC analysis performed by GC/FID. As always, we also continue offering reduced panel pricing for VOC analysis by GC/MS.


See for yourself how these new approaches help you get your job done more efficiently and effectively:

  • Any other metal not analyzed in-house by SGS Galson


We’ve set a new cap for VOC pricing by GC/FID on charcoal tubes or badges. Pricing will not exceed $440 per sample, no matter how many VOCs you request on the same sample.  For example, you can collect one badge, and we can report 28 different VOCs for $440.

As you see, there is much for you to gain by taking advantage of our new metals and VOC pricing approaches. You can contact our Client Services Representatives with your questions in a number of different ways:

We look forward to hearing from you.

VOCs by GC/ms

If you do not need our full profile on canisters, that’s OK! We offer convenient panel pricing as well. 1-3 compounds is $166, and 4-6 compounds is $226 per sample for our standard 5 business day turnaround time.
