cmc fee schedule


Our fees for testing and other services are very competitive in the industry, let alone for the time we take for initial phone conversations, extensive sample preparations, in-depth examinations, and the quality of the final report we provide.


Our normal turnaround for testing services and reports are usually 3 to 4 weeks, depending on our workload and number of samples to be analyzed.


We also offer expedited turnaround, within 5 business days, at a 100 percent premium. Under special circumstances, due to our in-house facilities of all laboratories, for a limited number of samples, depending on our workload, we can also offer super-rush turnaround, within 3 business days, for a 200 percent premium. 


Please let us know what turnaround you wish to select along with your samples


All new clients are required to send payment with the samples for their first project. Existing clients have 30-day pay period after which interest will be charged on the remaining balances. Clients with prior payment delinquencies are also required to send payments with samples.
