Turnaround Time, or "TAT" as it's commonly referred to, is the overall time required to receive, process, analyse, review and report your samples and testing results.
The majority of analytical tests are reported within 5-10 business days from the date of receipt at the testing facility.
Accelerated TAT is available depending on availability and the complexity of the analytical method and does incur an additional surcharge. Rush turnaround times are not guaranteed unless prior notice is provided to the receiving laboratory. See here for the surcharges for accelerated TATs.
Determining when your results will be ready.
*Same day reporting is generally by the end of day, and is dependent on matrix and concentration challenges. Saturday, Sunday and Holidays are not considered working days. Advance notice, particularly with same day TAT is required to guarantee TAT. Turnaround Times above are intended for testing parameters for routine soil and water matrices. For other matrices, please contact one of our Customer Service team members.
