Hi Toby,

First of all, I suggest you get a life and not come into the office on Saturdays.

But, besides that, we will soon be getting a new mass spec system with which we plan on doing among other things compound specific work on PLFA's.  So, if you don't manage to find a lab that can help you sooner, keep us in mind!  With any luck, we will be setting the system up this summer and actually doing analyses by the fall.  We haven't figured out what this service will cost yet.

Otherwise, what the heck am I doing here on a beautiful, end of winter, Saturday?!  Time to get out of here!

Good mornin',

Anybody know of a lab that runs 13C-PLFA for a fee?  These samples will be
enriched, slightly, in the +100-200 o/oo range (best guess for far...)

Any contact info and/or sample analysis price are greatly appreciated.
