Having operated continuously since its foundation in 1909 as an official laboratory in a state that produces a broad range of species, the OSU Seed Lab has gradually become a one-stop seed testing lab for a rich diversity of species and tests for commercial, certified and ISTA customers. We use cutting-edge equipment and methods for every test and use an advanced electronic information system to serve our customers. Most of our samples are from within Oregon, but we receive many samples from other states and overseas.
Please securely package samples to be tested, include a testing request form, and mail to the lab. Local customers are welcome to drop off samples at the lab; we have an after-hours sample drop box next to the front door. Clients sending live material: please call for instructions.
