* To determine the total analysis price for sample analysis, add the appropriate Sample Preparation, Sample Analysis, Instrument Usage, and/or Sample Handling Fees

Example 1: 25 water samples for NO3 & NH4

Price per sample = Flow Analysis Fee ($3.70) + Instrument Fee ($1.00) + Sample Handling Fee ($0.50)

Total NO3 & NH4 Analysis Price = 25 samples x ($3.70 + $1.00 + $0.50) = 25 x ($5.20) = $130.00

Example 2: 50 soil samples for total C,H,N & S

C,H,N Analysis

Price per sample = Combustion Analysis Fee ($8.25)

S Analysis

Price per sample = Sample Digestion Fee ($12.30) + ICP Analysis Fee ($3.70) + Instrument Fee ($1.00)

Total C,H,N,S Analysis Price = 50 samples x [(CHN Analysis Price) + (S Analysis Price) + Sample Handling Fee]

Total C,H,N,S Analysis Price = 50 samples x [($8.25) + ($12.30 + $3.70 + $1.00) + $0.50] = 50 x ($25.75) = $1,287.50
