Pricelist for Services (updated 7/1/2022)
Sample preparations differ with sample type (solid, liquid, gas) and for each analysis. Proper preparation is critical for quality results. Review the following documents before submitting your samples:
Contact the lab manager Suzanne Ankerstjerne firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting samples. Find us on Science Exchange.
Sample material not consumed during analysis is archived for 3 months from the date of submission and then discarded. For researchers within the United States, we can return unused sample material if requested. Please make this request during the submission process and include a prepaid return shipping label in your sample shipment. Additional fees may be applied to your bill if the samples are not prepared correctly. We are unable to analyze enriched samples (ie: tracers). If you are in doubt or want to confirm your samples are prepared and packaged correctly, please contact us (email@example.com).
This price list applies to external education/research institutions. If you are a member of Iowa State (internal user), contact Suzanne for the ISU price list. The corporate pricelist is also available upon request.

1. We use international isotopic standards (NBS 19, NBS 18, VSMOW2, SLAP, IAEA-600, IAEA-CH-6, IAEA N1, IAEA N2, etc.) to place all samples on the appropriate isotope scale (e.g., VSMOW, VPDB). Click here for an assortment of example reports.
