Hello all GRC members,

In case you were unaware, my lab at Washington State University is a service laboratory for testing samples for presence of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis.  We perform this service for the amphibian community at large and not at a profit.  We charge $14 per sample, which includes DNA extraction and real-time quantitative PCR in triplicate (or $55 for batches of 5 samples).  Our turnaround time is 6-8 weeks.  Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested.

With best wishes,
Andrew Storfer
