Service Costs (effective July 1, 2017):  The costs of services in the following tables are estimates based on straight forward analysis of samples.  However, because each samples and project has it's own unique challenges, costs may vary due to additional procedures required for successful mass spectrometry analysis.  These additional procedures and their costs will be discussed with the investigator at the initial consultation or, if need arises, after samples are submitted when costs may increase more than 20%.  

Examples of Costs for Common Workflows
