Important Notes:

  • Analyses start immediately upon receipt of samples to best ensure we meet our promised delivery. This means that charges are also incurred immediately upon receipt of samples. Order changes are welcome, but please be aware that partial or full charges will apply based on how much work has been completed by the time the change is requested.
