Prices are per sample unless otherwise noted. One Sample = One Bottle           
Phytoplankton Analysis          
Prices include 3 HPMA archival slides/sample. Species counts do not include acid cleaning.          
Please specify if you want acid cleaning for diatom identifications to the species level for an additional $132.00 per sample.          
Many common, planktonic diatoms are easily speciated without acid cleaning.

Calculation Level With Biovolume Calculations Without Biovolume Calculations          
Species Count (All periphyton counts to the species level for diatoms include acid cleaning and at least three Naphrax mounts.) 400 NU to total algal threshold and 500 valve count  $732.00 $625.00

Diatom count to species or below for diversity purposes Please Inquire - Based on time or taxa encountered, not counting threshold.           
Zooplankton Analysis          
Zooplankton counts include report and raw data file ( multiple formats available) and optically clear permanent slides (one per sample).
Counts reported as animals/L. Please contact us before sending Marine Samples.
Charges for the analysis remain the same as what is requested even in the event no zooplankton or adult male copepods are found in the sample.
Zooplankton prices are based on one (1) slide per sample, if the samples are Daphnid dominated, we suggest going to three (3) slides at an additional cost of $66/sample. Please specify 1 or 3 slides when requesting a quote, unless 3 slides are specified, we will base zooplankton counts and pricing on 1 slide.
