Thank you for your interest in our services. For a cost estimate or volume requirements, please contact the project manager. To submit samples, please follow the directions below. The smaller the set of samples in your study, the higher the costs-per-sample. An additional 10% QC samples will be added to all projects. Our current turnaround time is ~3-5 months (faster for GC-TOF MS projects, slower for targeted LC-MS/MS projects). 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.
