Thank you for your interest in our services. For a cost estimate or volume requirements, please contact the project manager, Kelly Paglia. To submit samples, please follow the directions below. We do have a minimum sample requirement of 12 samples (per platform) and our current turn around time is ~4-5 months. Once the completed data has been sent, leftover samples will be discarded after one month. Sample submissions with missing information will be immediately returned to the client. An additional 10% QC samples will be added to sample sizes greater than n=100. 

As of Monday, January 6, 2020, all service requests for the West Coast Metabolomics Core Facility will be made through our new billing system - Stratocore PPMS.
