Fast Turnaround: Normal turnaround is postal dispatch of analysis report within 10 working days after MPS receives samples with MSDS, billing information, and analysis instructions. Priority turnaround (50% surcharge) is within four working days. Rush turnaround (200% surcharge) places samples ahead of waiting analyses, however analyses in progress are not interrupted. Priority and Rush results are faxed to customer immediately upon analysis completion, followed by postal dispatch of analysis report. Surcharges are added to listed prices. Current workload may limit number of samples which MPS can accept for fast turnaround.
