High Precision: Price available on enquiry - please contact Prof Gordon Cook. Alternatively, telephone or write to Professor Gordon Cook (details below).
The lab also provides stable isotope analyses on a standalone basis.
Aside from radiocarbon dating, ISO/IEC 17005-accredited Beta Analytic also provides biobased/renewable carbon content testing to manufacturers, product distributors, and researchers worldwide for biobased products, biofuels, waste-derived fuels and their combustion emissions (CO2 gas).
Below is a list of commonly dated materials, the factors that should be taken into account when selecting material, and the pretreatment methods that the samples will undergo prior to radiocarbon dating.
The radiocarbon age of wood corresponds the year the ring grew.
We have some additional advices for C-14 sample submission and try to produce services in short period for your convenience.
All samples, to be analyzed, should be clean, dry, bagged, and labeled C-14 Sample submission form & details, should be filled out printed, and posted with the samples).
£305 ( VAT) per sample for batches of 10-39 samples.
£295 ( VAT) per sample for batches of 40 samples or more. 4 weeks) with routine precision: £415 ( VAT) per sample. These are fixed charges with no additional charge for collagen preparation, cremated bone preparation, cellulose extraction, etc. These prices include correction for isotopic fractionation (δPb analyses.
