  6. Other additional compatible analyte pricing; see additional compatible analyte column.

– Bulks used as analytical standards for GC analysis will be billed at $84
– LOQs listed do not include the desorption efficiency, which could result in higher detection levels. Please call the lab for more information.
– For additional Method information, please refer to the links on Method types.
– Review the published method when determining the correct number of field blanks to submit with your samples.
– The media shelf lives cited are the maximum possible shelf lives. Media should always be used by the expiration date on the label.
– The following surcharges will be added to the listed fees based on the following sample turnaround times:

** Same Day 200%
** Next Day (12pm) 150%
** Next Day (6pm) 100%
** Second Day 75%
** Third Day 50%
** Fourth Day 35%

Preferred method.
Ship overnight refrigerated.
Call in advance of sampling to order media.
A three sample minimum submittal is required.
Collect using 2 tubes in a series.
3M recommended maximum sampling hours.
Subcontracted analysis.
Protect samples from light.
Immediately after sampling remove from cassette and place in glass vial.
Please send, under separate cover, a sample (bulk) of your particular solvent for use as a reference standard. The bulk sample will be charged the analysis price. Additional analyses and fees may be required to determine the DE for results that do not match a common standard.
Reported results reflect elemental analysis of the requested metals. Certain compounds may not be solubilized during digestion, resulting in data that may be biased low.
Analyte is referenced in the published method. If more than one published method is cited, the analyte is referenced in at least one of the methods.
