Sample Requirements

All samples should be packaged individually and labeled with a numeric code. Supply us with expected elemental concentration and isotopic enrichment (e.g., % N and atom% 15N). Provide contact and billing information.

  •     Solid samples - should be dried and ground to pass a 40-mesh screen or better (powdered)
  •     Solution samples -  should first be dried or diffused onto filter paper disks
  •     Gas samples - please contact us for information on preparation of gas samples
  •     FAME or other GC-IRMS samples - please contact us for details

Total price and turn around time vary. Please contact David Myrold with any questions about price or sample requirements.
