Analytical Services & Prices

The prices are assuming no expedited turn-around time for results, and no matrix issues (e.g. extractions in KCl, high pH, low pH). Samples requiring dilution or having non-routine matrices have a 50% surcharge. Samples requiring expedited results have a 100% surcharge. Samples generally take a few weeks to a few months, depending on how many analyses you want done and the current workload in the lab. You should contact the Lab Manager for expected turnaround times. Prices are for off campus customers, UNH customers should contact the lab manager for pricing information.

The total number of samples for a particular project is determined by the data reporting requirements of the client, and resets to zero on January 1 of each year, starting in 2010. Each project’s samples will cost the higher 1-20 per sample price for the first 20 samples and then will cost the lower 21+ per sample price for any number of additional samples for the rest of the year.
