Just wondering if any of you are willing to do any contract work for the above? I have 12 to 20
potential seawater samples that I would like to have analyzed and of course I'd gladly pay the
going rate for the analysis. I'm interested in a price quote per sample for the going rate, and
what is necessary for sampling? How large a water sample? Glass or plastic vials? What about
the caps? Conical inserts, parafilm? How is the sample "fixed"? How much of what is used to
stop any biologic activity during storage or transport? What about storage? Frozen in the
freezer or just cold in the refrigerator? A dark closet? Is room temp OK?
I would appreciate it if any of you could help bring me up to speed.
