Endophyte Service Lab

Updated Thursday September 17, 2020
The lab is open again after being closed due to precautions for personnel surrounding poor air quality in Corvallis.

Prices for testing have increased for this fiscal year. Ergovaline and lolitrem B quantitation are now $86 each, and rush processing for either of those tests is $25 each. In addition, the ergot pellet test has increased to $110. We are also updating our website at This site will continue to be active as we transition, but please check out our new and improved site when you get a chance!

***Impacts of COVID-19 to operations in the Endophyte Service Lab***
At this time, OSU campuses and facilities remain open for operations statewide; however, OSU is taking measures to reduce the frequency of interactions among students, faculty, staff and visitors to the extent possible. Information on OSU’s COVID-19 response can be found at The Endophyte Service Lab is currently testing for mycotoxins and is practicing measures recommended by OSU through the CDC, Oregon Health Authority and other public health agencies to minimize risk to our employees. We do not anticipate longer than normal sample turn-around times at this juncture with the current sample volume, and ability to practice social distancing, wearing face coverings, and hand-washing/sanitizing procedures. At this time, we are asking that all samples be submitted by dropping off in the sample bin of the Oak Creek parking lot or through the mail and not via in-person drop-off. USPS, UPS and FedEx will all deliver mail to our lab address:
