I used Caro a few years ago.  They have a metals panel that they do but I can't find it in their product list. They have a $100 metals add on to their "essential soil test" that looks like about what I paid $113/sample for.  When I dealt with them they were really helpful and open to customizing, if needed.

Oh - and really fast!  I'm pretty sure I got the results the next day.
