Radiocarbon dating cost dating in ventura
* Sample and sample pretreatment should be documented, if possible a picture should show the quality of the prepared sample.** To establish the quality of the sample preparation outside our laboratory these samples should be accompanied by • at least two background samples • one or two standard samples (e.g. These samples have to be prepared in the same laboratory in substantially the same way as the unknown samples and will be charged as regular samples.These prices include sampling, chemical pre-treatment, stable carbon isotope and AMS isotope measurement for samples relevant to research in Archaeology or Environmental Science.We will also give advice on the choice of samples for dating and help in the calibration and analysis of dates in context.
20mg (i.e 2% of a gram) sample wrapped in aluminium foil and then zip lock is required.
Typically, this is NZD100 for pretreatment and NZD200 for pretreatment and combustion, but charges may vary depending on the sample type.
All samples that have undergone pretreatment and subsequently found to be unsuitable for dating, or abandoned for another reason, may incur a part charge.
These prices include sampling (at Oxford), sample preparation, stable carbon isotope and AMS isotope measurement.
We reserve the right to refuse material for dating if the provenance is uncertain or for other ethical considerations.C dating service is for samples yielding at least 0.5 mg of carbon after chemical pretreatment (often acid-alkali-acid treatment of organic material).
