Stable Isotope Laboratory - Turnaround Time

We normally take two to three weeks (depending on backlog) to process batches of less than 50 samples. Larger batches may take longer to process. If given prior notice, we can process small batches of samples (i.e. < 30) within two days of submittal. We will strive to get your results to you when you need them. For the best estimate of turnaround time, contact us in advance and let us know how many samples you have, what analyses you require, when you plan on sending them, and most importantly, when you would like to have the results. We will then let you know whether we can process your samples in time to satisfy your needs.
