FLREC Chemistry Lab Instruments:

TEST: 
NO2-N, NO3-N, NH4-N, PO4-P in solutions
(both regular range and low level AA)

FEES:

Per Sample: 
1 analyte - $1       3 analytes - $3
2 analytes - $2     4 analytes - $4

NOTES: 
1. Analytes in water/sea water etc.
    Price does not include sample digestion.

2. Previous fees are accessed based on
    “per injection”, which may cause confusion
    in some cases. Align the fees to “per analyte”
    mode would be clearer and more

TEST:
Total Carbon and Total Nitrogen in Soils and Plant Tissues

FEE:
$2 per sample including digestion + TC + TN

NOTES:
A single run with Carbon Nitrogen Analyzer will first digest and analyze both TC and TN simultaneously. Thus it is considered a complete package.

TESTS:

FEE:
Various depends on projects

Notes:

Users bring materials, low usage, and minimum maintenance cost. However, the replacement cost is high.

TEST:

Multi-elements (P, K, Ca, Mg, etc.) in solutions 

FEES:
$1 per element per sample

NOTES:
1. Analytes in water/sea water etc. Price does not
    include sample digestion.
2. Previous fees are accessed based on
    “per injection”, which does not offset the cost
    when multiple elements were requested.

TEST:
UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

FEE:
Various: Depends on Project

NOTES:
UV-Vis is being used more like a research tool than a routine testing instrument so the fee assessment varies among projects. In addition, users bring their own materials. The maintenance is less intensive on UV-Vis and it generally has a much longer ‘shell life’ than other instruments.

TEST
Dry ashing (oxidation) / Organic Matter / Loss-on-Ignition with Muffle Furnace

FEE:
To be determined

NOTES:
Since chem lab does not provide personnel running samples and the material cost to run LOI is minimal, the fee per sample would be minimal.

TEST:
Digestion with microwave preparation system

FEE: 
$2 per sample

NOTES:
Microwave digestion system cost high, plus materials (acids) consumptions.
