Organic/Inorganic Pricing Schedule

ACF Lab Prices – Organic and Inorganic
2013 – 2017

Below are the organic lab prices for 2013 – 2017 and the inorganic prices for 213 – 2016. To make it easier to find the prices you are looking for use the Adobe “Bookmarks” as a table of contents (see the note below more information).

If downloaded, the “Bookmarks” bar on the left side of the PDF file links you to price years in this document.

Important Notes

  • The current inorganic contract runs from 2012 until the end of 2016, so there are no prices for 2017, only for organic analyses. The organic contract runs from 2013 until the end of 2017.
  • "% Moisture" and "% Lipid" - The price for a "% Moisture" is already included in all organic and inorganic analyses for tissue and soil/sediment samples. For "% Lipid", the price is already included for all organic analyses for tissue samples. These do not have to be requested or priced separately. However, whether the lab performs a "% Moisture" and/or a "% Lipid" can also depend on your sample size and the number of analyses you request.
  • Help – While the pricing schedules are pretty simple to use, there are a few things you should keep in mind. For information on how to use the pricing schedules correctly, along with several examples, click on the ECDMS link d “How to Use the ACF Pricing Guide”

Note: For non-FWS users make certain you read the "Message for Non-FWS" section in the pricing guides to correctly price your analyses. Non-FWS users are asscessed an over-head cost which IS NOT included in the pricing guides.
