Turn-around Time

Routine turn-around time is 10 to 14 days for inorganics, and 2 to 4 weeks for volatiles and semi-volatiles. Most data are reported within 7 days.

EMERGENCY RUSH (0-24 hour turn-around, weekend or holiday) is available at a rate of 2 X the normal charge. RUSH (0-48 hour turn-around) is available at a rate of 1.75 X the normal rate. RUSH (0-72 hour turn-around) is available at a rate of 1.5 X the normal rate.
