Price Lists

Pricing for soil, bio solid, water, and plant tissue tests can be found below. Our bio solid tests are found under the "Soil Test" heading just before the "Water Test" heading. All testing is also subject to the following policies:
1. A sample receiving fee of $3 will be assessed for each sample submitted.
2. Samples received in sets of 20 or more will receive a 30% discount.
3. BYU faculty/staff and government agencies will receive special pricing. Click here to view government price list.

If you are unsure which test would be proper for the analysis you want completed, please contact a member of our research staff to discuss your project. Our research staff is available M-F 9:00 AM–5:00 PM MST at (801) 422-2147, or can be reached via email at

When you know the test you would like performed please visit our Sample Submission page to complete our Sample Submission Form. We look forward to assisting you!
