You should check out the MSU-Northern Bio-Energy Center, they offer discounts to MT residents for their services.

Here is the web link to get you pointed in the right direction: The MSU-Northern Bio-Energy Center

The website is current as of 2010, unless they changed something in the last year. Which knowing how northern is I wouldn't put it past them.

If they are in fact outsourcing, it wouldn't hurt to see if they would be able to send one of your samples along with theirs. Maybe you would be eligible for a reduced rate as you are currently enrolled if they can assist you.

I've used Blackstone before and its a good service. Energy Labs in Billings will do it, but they aren't cheap, and they won't tell you what the results mean.

...I had one done a couple years or so ago for a little foreign car I bought from a family member. The cost was $20 and was sent to Caterpillar... it was their test kit and they did the analysis. The results were sent to my house in paper form and electronically by email. The best $20 I spent checking out a used car. The information was amazing.

They mostly test well water and methane/CBM water, and I know that test is $100 per sample, I went to school with one of their techs and I know one of their Analytical Chemists, heck of a good lab with excellent quality control.
