Default Lab fees

I see in inspector outlet that there are air-o-cell cassettes for $25 including lab fee. My question is does anyone know the turn around time that is included for that price? I set up an account with EMSL because they are not far from me and I got pricing but it seems high. For a 2 week turn around it is $43. Is that around what everyone else is paying? For 72 hr it is $62.

That's expensive. Does it include the air-o-cell?

Mmarinos,

Do they know you're a business? I think that's the normal civilian rate... 24hrs should be $30 for you at EMSL

Mike,
Yes I set up an account with them as a business. I have a rep that I have been talking to his name is Jeromy Bish. Maybe I need to talk to someone else?

maybe. You would think you and I would be quoted the same. My contact is Jason McDonald. I remember the first time I used them they charged me that $74.50 and I called and asked what happened to $30 and they said they forgot and adjusted it.

$20 for same day at InspectorLab. And they make a determination. Been using them for a few months and I have nothing negative to say.

Try Hayes Microbial. The cost and turnaround is very reasonable.

Hi Manny!

The price on inspector outlet includes the Air-O-Cell and the lab fee. The turnaround time for results is 24 hours. We were the first and as far as I know the only AIHA accredited laboratory to make a determination on the results based on the comparison sample. This is an option and can be turned on and off in your preferences when you open an account.
