Rates

 

Our rates for preparation / analysis are shown below. Click on the specific preparation / analysis for details. Contact Andrew Schauer with questions. Rates are updated annually (current as of February 14, 2015). Payment is accepted via check or wire transfer.

IsoLab is a research lab; our internal projects have priority access. While the typical turnaround time is 4-6 weeks, instruments could be exceptionally busy or down. Researchers with time constraints should contact Andrew Schauer. Teaching a field / lab course that includes isotope analyses? Let us know your desired schedule before the course starts. We accept natural abundance samples only. No labeled material. No exceptions.
