Phytoplankton Analysis
Prices include 3 HPMA 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 $125.00 per sample.
Many common, planktonic diatoms are easily speciated without acid cleaning.
Algal Counts include report and raw data file (multiple formats available) and optically clear permanent slides (3 per sample). Unite available as cells/mL (cm2) or natural units/mL (cm2). Analysis prices include report and raw data file Only. Interpretations, extensive explanations, and modifications to the initial report will be billed at $340 per hour.

PhycoTech, Inc. reserves the right to refuse improperly col collected or leaking samples.
Normal processing time is 14-16 weeks.
There is a $60.00/sample expedite fee for reporting within 4 weeks and a $118.00/sample expedite fee for 72 hour business day turn around IF feasible (Must call ahead before sending samples).
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 $62/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.
