Where can I find a price list?

The lab testing process is very detailed. We perform thousands of tests within our labs, each catering to a different requirement, specification and/or sample type. This is why we process each price query individually. If you need a quote, you need to send us a query using the form on the contact page. Include the following information: detailed sample description; sample type (e.g. animal origin, dairy product, plant origin, processed meat, environmental swabs, alcoholic beverage, cosmetic, raw material, petrochemical, etc.); the sample texture (e.g. solid, semi solid, liquid, powder); storage condition (e.g. frozen <0°, chilled 3°±2°, ambient >7°). Please remember to indicate the quantity of samples and the frequency of testing.

How long does it take to receive a quote?

Depending on the complexity of your query, getting your quote ready can take anywhere between 1-7 working days.
