Before you submit samples to the PCL, all projects require an in person meeting to establish a new project. Please contact the PCL staff to arrange this meeting.
The PCL operates as a fee-for-service core facility and accepts samples on a first come, first serve basis. Please Email us to set up an initial project meeting (see Contacts). If you have worked with us before please use iLabs to submit additional Projects or Samples. If you have not used iLabs before, please contact us for how to set up your account. If you are an EXTERNAL (non-TAMU) please contact the lab directly for instructions on how to submit samples.
Fees apply in the case of undesired results that are due to the nature of the submitted sample. Incomplete or failed results due to instrument failure do not apply.
International payments can be made by direct wire transfer. Please contact the PCL for further information.
Payment will be expected within 30 days of billing notification.
