Assays & Pricing

Assays and Pricing

The CAF lab is equipped to measure any hormone for which there is a commercially-available assay kit, please contact us if you are not sure about a particular hormone. The standard pricing for any assay includes three costs: base cost for each sample (which accounts for labor and basic supply costs), the cost of the reagents to run the assay, and the shipping costs for those reagents. Available assays and approximately pricing per sample are described below.

We are now accepting external clients outside the University of Michigan. External costs are the same as internal. Please email caf.lab@umich.edu for more information.
