Our online sample submission form will be available soon, for now please use this Submission Form.
CAL does maintain an APHIS compliance agreement for handling soils from some foreign countries, and regulated quarantined areas. If you are submitting samples from Curry County Oregon or anywhere outside of Oregon, you must call the lab prior to submission so that we can set up the appropriate labels needed for shipping and the sample handling protocol apon arrival.
If you are on the OSU campus you can bring samples directly to the CAL with your submission form. We are located on the third floor of the Ag Life Science building in room 3079. We are typically available from 9-5 M-F.
For those unfamiliar with OSU Campus, you can find an OSU map here
Please send samples to:

OSU accounting services will use your billing address from your sample submission form to send you a bill once the analyses are completed.
If you fill in an OSU Index number on your samples submission form, accounting can easily charge your account.
Check in advance:
If you are sure of the price you will be charged, you can send a check along with your samples. Please make sure to include the sample submission fee.
To pay with a Visa or Mastercard credit card, you can go to:
You will need to have your invoice number available in order to use this payment method.
It is our goal to get you results within two weeks of receiving samples. However, we are getting very busy. If you do not need your results within two weeks, please let us know. Indicate the desired date for results on your sample submission form and we will do what we can to make this happen.
If you need samples within two days of our receipt you can select the rush option. I recommend that you call first to make sure we can process your samples because there are times when the equipment is not functioning properly. If we cannot get you what you need, I will recommend sending to a commercial lab, they are almost always faster and cheaper than OSU CAL.
