COVID-19 Updates

The Research Analytical Laboratory remains open.  But due to COVID-19 safety and security measures, we must limit in-person sample drop-off.  If you are on campus, please call ahead to arrange safe hand-off.  Otherwise, please mail or ship your samples, keeping in mind that there may be delays in transport and laboratory functions.   We are currently focusing our effort on timely analysis of soil and related materials for the spring planting season.  All other work is temporarily on-hold and will remain so until COVID-19 staffing restrictions are lifted.  Should we be forced to temporarily suspend operations, samples will be properly stored for future testing.

Price Adjustments

Every year in early July, we review our pricing to update it for the new fiscal year. Some prices may change. Any adjustments will be reflected on our website. Feel free to contact us with further questions.
