(1) "Autonomous" analyses involve training and supervision of procedures for a minimum of 2 hours (or more if necessary). A minimum additional cost corresponding to the hourly salary of a graduate student is to be expected. 
(2) Standard samples, for particle size fraction < 3000 um, in solution with deflocculant (e. g. Calgon) or dry powder (pounded) and from which the organic matter has previously been removed. 
(3) Rate applicable for samples that cannot be analysed under the conditions mentioned in (1) and whose composition and/or condition require additional pre-treatments or treatments. 
(4) The rate can change depending on the type and time of pre-processing. 
(5) Rates are subject to federal and provincial taxes.

Please note that rates are subject to change without notice.
