Semi-Quantitative ICP Screen

Approximation of elemental content in ranges from > 10 ppm to < 5% for 70 elements determinable by ICP.


Please call for pricing. We do not offer vitamin testing but are happy to coordinate testing with other laboratories, so you only need to submit one sample for your analytical needs.

Mixing System Evaluations

Minimum of 10 samples required. Call for instructions that further detail this process and to help you choose the best analytes. Discounts available when multiple elements are to be quantitated.

* Selenium and Iodine are available, but not eligible for discounted mixer study pricing.
