Examples of material that we date are wood, charcoal, charred seeds, plant macrofossils, peat, bone, burnt bone, mollusc shells, and foraminifera.
We also measure 14C in modern samples for determination of biomass content in e. Natural 14C can be used in numerous applications, of which radiocarbon dating, with the possibility for dating back to about years, is among the best-known.
Radiocarbon dating is based on the radioactive decay of 14C in dead tissues, which can be used to calculate the time that has elapsed since death occurred. This is possible since organisms have the same 14C content as the environment in which they live.
After the death of the organism, the carbon which survives decomposition continuously loses 14C in relation to its content of stable 12C. Our lab performs high-quality analyses and is committed to continual quality control to ensure that the precision and accuracy of our 14C measurements dates are maintained at the highest level.
We routinely include secondary standards of different ages and sizes in our measurements. Radiocarbon to test and ensure the quality of our analyses.
Research at our lab has contributed to the improvement of the recently published IntCal20 calibration curve crucial to transfer 14C ages into calendar ages Adolphi et al. QSRMuscheler et al. Basic price The basic price is SEK excl. VAT for one normal 14C-dating.
We offer discounts when large s of samples are submitted. Follow the link below for further information about our services and prices. Prices and sample submission.
Reporting time At present November it takes approximately 2 months excluding periods when the laboratory is closed for holidays from the arrival of a sample until we report the result to the customer. This applies to normal samples, and the time varies depending on the type of material. Reporting time for fast handling is maximum 6 weeks but normally weeks. All samples submitted for dating must be accompanied by a sample description form doc, new tab.
