Special Requests

We believe that testing is an essential ingredient for success. Sometimes our standard analysis may not fit your needs. We can offer you a modified or limited analysis, as well as a more in depth evaluation. For example, if you only need to check your media pH, we can help. Perhaps you need to identify an unusual compound in your mixing tank. We want to help you succeed, so call us with your request.
