In accordance with division (C) of section 3713.04 of the Revised Code , the fees for the following tests and laboratory analyses performed by the bedding laboratory of the Ohio division of industrial compliance of the department of commerce shall be as follows:

(A) Percentage charge: For the calculation by weight of component percentages, each component is separated and weighed to the gram on certified scales, the fee shall be fifty-five dollars.

(B) Fibers and other natural and man made materials: For the testing and analysis of the percentage of Fibers and other Natural & Man Made Materials the fee shall be fifty-five dollars.

(C) Macroscopic evaluation: For the visual inspection to obtain information on the distinctive characteristics of the specimen and to determine if additional tests are required, the fee shall be fifty-five dollars.

(D) Microscopic analysis: For the examination under magnification, including the mounting of a specimen on a slide, to note the longitudinal and cross-sectional appearance and comparison with of known fibers, the fee shall be fifty-five dollars for each fiber type.

(E) Man made fiber identification: For the examination under high magnification of man made fibers, including the mounting of a specimen on a slide, the fee shall be sixty dollars. The fee for man made fiber identification shall not include chemical analyses.

(F) Fiber composition: For the qualitative and Quantitative identification of fiber type which shall be obtained by subjecting a specimen to a series of numerical sequenced chemical solubility tests, the fee shall be ninety dollars for each fiber type.

(G) Chemical and microscopial analysis: For the analysis of a specimen under the microscope, at low and high magnification, and, if necessary, by means of a chemical solubility test, to determine the composition of a sample, the fee shall be one hundred ten dollars per fiber.

(H) Feather and fiber separation: For the quantitative chemical and/or mechanical analysis to determine the percentage of feathers and fiber in an identified blend, the fee shall be one hundred ten dollars.

(I) Down and fiber separation: For the quantitative chemical and/or mechanical analysis to determine the percentage of down and fiber in an identified blend, the fee shall be one hundred ten dollars.

(J) Content without species identification: For the quantitative analysis done by hand separation using forceps to determine the percentage of feathers and own in a sample, the fee shall be one hundred fifty dollars.
