The OSU Crop and Soil Science Central Analytical Laboratory operates as a fee for service laboratory. We accept soil, plant, water, and soil amendment samples from OSU faculty, staff, students, and extension faculty, as well as gardeners, field reps, and commercial producers.
Update 9/21/18 Effective immediately, Shannon Andrews is no longer the manager of the OSU Central Analytical Laboratory. Responsibilities for laboratory work and business management are being transitioned to Gloria Ambrowiak and responsibilities for consultation and soil health projects are being transferred to Markus Kleber. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email Gloria at 541-737-2187 firstname.lastname@example.org
Update 8/7/18: Our Shimadzu TOC and TN is not in working order. Therefore, right now, we can not analyze dissolved carbon or nitrogen and can not quantify microbial biomass. Please contact for further information.
We are actively pursuing collaboration with OSU faculty, staff, extension, and experiment station scientists as well as the NRCS, SWCDs, and ODA. If you have a project related to soils, but are not sure how to sample or what to analyze for, contact us and we can help you with your plan or develop a method.
We welcome your feedback. Please contact Gloria Ambrowiak with questions, concerns, ideas, or more information.
