Reporting / Turn-Around Times / Rush Charges

Anatek offers customized reporting formats in a variety of data packages.  Our list prices reflect standard data packages that include analytical results, testing methods and techniques used.  Requested quality control samples outside of our normal QC program will be billed on a per sample basis.  Standard turn-around times and rush billing are outlined below.
Electronic deliverables are available for most reporting formats, and will be billed on a quoted basis.
Faxed or e-mailed preliminary reports are provided at the customers request.
Reprints of reports older than 3 months, but less than 1 year are $10.00 each, and reports older than 1 year are $25.00 each.  Data will be stored for five years and then purged.
Anatek has an excellent reputation for meeting our estimated turn-around times, however, we do not guarantee a set turn-around time to anyone except those who are paying additional fees. Our normal turn-around time estimates are listed below, and samples to be analyzed for more than one contaminant will have the turn-around time associated with the longest analysis. It is not our policy to write partial reports.

Anatek Labs, Inc. must be notified of and approve all rush order requests prior to receiving samples.  Without prior approval of rush requests, we cannot guarantee turn-around times.  Although Anatek meets most rush requests, should a guaranteed time be missed, there will be no rush fees charged.  Please call for details and pricing before shipping rush samples.  Rush project reports will be available at the end of the business day.  

Please note:  Rush projects must be received by noon to have rush turn-around timing begin on that day (e.g., for next day reporting, a sample must be received by noon).  For samples received after noon, rush turn-around begins on the next business day.

Rush projects will be billed at the following rates:

Projects that have a standard turn-around time greater than 10 working days (e.g., full DW SOC and full TCLP packages) will be quoted on a per-project basis.
