Price List

WARNING: We DO NOT ACCEPT samples with enriched 14C (often used as a tracer).  Any contamination of any amount of enriched 14C ("hot") material may cause thousands of dollars in clean-up and other costs. If you submit "hot" samples to this lab, you may be liable.

  • Minimum fee applies to all projects:
    • Internal: 25$
    • NSERC/Can Gov: 35$
    • Private/Other: 50$
  • OCGC (Internal) prices: please contact us.
  • Turn around time is usually better than 2 months.
  • A "RUSH" rate is offered:
    • 1-29 samples = triple the listed price
    • 30+ samples = double the listed price
  • A discount of $5 per sample off the listed price is applied when the client/student does his or her own preparation work towards the isotopic analysis, e.g. weighing of solid or liquid samples into capsules, carbonate weighing and acidification, gas injection, filtration of waters for the LGR, water pipetting and flushing for the gasbench.
  • Up to 10% duplicates are granted at no additional cost; we can add them in at random, or you can choose them yourself.

Additional Notes
  • Prices are subject to change without prior notice.
  • Left-over sample material will be retained for 6 months after completion.
  • Priority is given to all 4th year thesis projects due to the limited time constraints.
  • Additional duplicates/replicates beyond the 10% at no charge are recommended for homogeneity and statistical information.
  • Invoices are generally issued once the analyses are complete for Canadian customers.
    • Special budget deadlines can be accommodated; contact Patricia to make arrangements.

International customers - please note:

  • Pre-billing is in effect. An invoice will be sent to you via email once we receive your submission file(s).
  • A fee of $50 will be added to the invoice to cover customs clearance and bank transfer costs.
  • PLEASE declare a nominal value for your samples ($10): they have no commercial value.
  • PLEASE FILL OUT THE CANADA CUSTOMS INVOICE and include it with your shipment.
  • Extra duty or shipping charges will be added to the Hatch Lab invoice.
  • Samples and their containers will not be returned.  An exception may be pre-arranged for extremely precious material (you cover the costs). In general we would ask that you send us subsamples that need not be returned.
