Clinic Fees

Fees for Services Per Sample

All samples have a "Basic Sample Fee" (unless otherwise stated).The basic fee covers our standard diagnostic and identification procedures for plant diseases, plant problems and insect identification. Includes initial sample evaluation, microscopic examination, routine cultures for fungal and bacterial pathogensand management suggestions, if needed.  Also includes examination of images submitted as samples for identification and/or diagnosis. If multiple sample types are sent in to the clinic each sample will be given a separate sample number.

These fees reflect cost per sample.
