I know pricing should not be difficult

Unfortunately, it's a bit tricky if to charge accurately for the work we perform. 


All samples are a bit different and take different amounts of time to work on. Almost all of the variability (in your results & in the pricing) is due to the protein extraction and sample prep. All samples are a bit different and require different amount of time to prepare. LC-MS runs are charged per hour.

We can give you an estimate and you can cut down the costs by doing a lot of the work yourself and using shorter LC-MS gradients.

  • These are base price estimates including data analysis and 1 hour LC-MS runs. Final prices depend on the type of sample preparation, actual LC-MS runtime, and extra labor.


Do the protein digestion yourself and send the lab your peptides to save money.
