When can I expect my results? Please expect an email with your results in 6-8 weeks.

Can you rush results? No, in order to ensure our results go out in our 6-8 week window, samples are processed in the order that they are received.

Is there a discount for Cornell, researchers or large sample volumes? Due to our not-for-profit status we are unable to offer discounts.

How do I pay? You will be contacted just before or after receiving results with a link to a secure pay-portal. This will enable you to pay by credit card if you did not enclose a check with your sample submission. Checks can be made out to Cornell University.

How do I know that my samples arrived safely? Please track your package or include a note with the samples requesting to be notified when the samples are received.
