Reporting time for fast handling is maximum 6 weeks but normally 3-4 weeks.
All samples submitted for dating must be accompanied by a sample description form.
For students and anyone interested , you will be able to learn the science behind the AMS machine and radiocarbon dating from the Education pull-down menu.

The method takes advantage of the natural occurrence of a radioactive isotope of carbon (C in samples of ancient carbon compounds and comparing this with the amount in modern materials, it is possible to determine the time of cessation of carbon exchange with the atmosphere.
It has forwarding offices in Australia, Brazil, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the UK.
An example of precision dating is the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Current research areas range from geology to marine biology and many more. For our customers, the service menu provides important sample submission information.
