2012 Inorganic Pricing Guide

Important: *Inorganic Prices for 2012 are estimates only, based on the 2011 prices plus 3%. All prices are subject to change. All prices are now based on the calander year.

Important: Inorganic prices differ depending on your organization and who’s paying for the analyses. Please use the following guidelines:

·    Fish and Wildlife Catalogs – Use the prices shown below, as is, with no modifications.

·    * USGS Catalogs – Add 42% to the prices below (unless you are using FWS funds to pay for the analyses).

·    ** All Other Agencies – Add 47% to the prices below (unless you are using FWS funds to pay or the analyses).

Additional Notes:

* USGS Catalogs – The 42% figure used above includes a 25% overhead charge by ACF for processing catalogs and results and a 17% overhead charge by the FWS for processing funds transferred from the USGS (Interagency Agreements).

** Other Agencies - The 47% figure used above includes a 25% overhead charge by ACF for processing catalogs and results and a 22% overhead charge by the FWS for processing funds transferred from other agencies (Interagency Agreements).

If the price for a given lab is blank, then the lab does not perform that analysis. Contact ACF for the price of analyses that are not listed below. All prices are subject to change without notice

New: All inorganic prices are now based on the calendar year, not the fiscal year. The prices for 2008 are valid from January 1, 2008 until December 30, 2008

*Inorganic Prices for 2012 are estimates only, based on the 2011 prices plus 3%. All prices are subject to change. All prices are now based on the calander year.
