For straight forward GC-MS, LC-MS and LC-MS/MS analysis, a high volume discount is available to researchers with 33 digit codes and to non-profit and Harvard affiliated organizations. Please note that you MUST SELECT LC-MS or GC-MS as the analysis type during submission on our LIMS systems for these rates to take effect. Do not select ESI-MS/MS, as this type of anaysis does not involve chromatography and does not involve high volume discounts. Analyzing a large number of samples together is more analytically challenging. This is because there can be column degradation and instrument sensitivity loss as concentrated samples are analyzed and the instrument gets "dirtier". Some sample cleanup is highly recommended for bulk analysis for greater reproducibility across samples.
The following high volume rates are offered to Harvard affiliated researchers (must possess 33 digit code). As of July 1, 2014 the following high volume rates for multiple samples submitted at the same time will be offered to non-profit organizations outside Harvard who do not have 33 digit codes (overhead rate is added).
|Number of Samples||Harvard ($/sample)||Non-Profit ($/sample)|
|11-20 samples (15% discount)||$51.00||$90.00|
|21-30 samples (25% discount)||$45.90||$78.00|
|More than 30 samples (35% discount)||$41.31||$70.00|
