*For each added element up to 20 elements, an additional fee of 40 ₺ for ICP-OES and 60 ₺ for ICP-MS is charged. It does not include Hg, B, Ag, Ru, Rh, Pd, Ir, Pt and Au elements, these elements are charged separately.

  • For your requests over 20 elements, you can get service fee information by sending your request and contact information to the relevant experts via e-mail.
  • ICP-MS, ICP-OES analysis costs do not include solution and pre-treatments. The procedures to be applied may differ according to the sample characteristics. Pricing for these transactions is available in the table above.
  • There are standard solution and analysis methods applied in our laboratory. If the information requested in the KAL test request form is not specified in the relevant places, standard methods are applied. For this reason, it is important to share information about the samples (especially in the determination of boron, silver and mercury).
  • In some microwave system solutions, the quenching (complexation) process is carried out using boric acid. In cases where BOR determination is requested in the same sample, a separate solution is applied and charged.
