Radiocarbon dating laboratories
From its first radiocarbon measurement in 1951 to the installation of a new compact AMS in 2010 this facility has been at the forefront of radiocarbon analysis. We provide a full radiocarbon dating service for research and commercial clients worldwide.In just the past 10 years over 25,000 samples have been measured from clients in New Zealand and throughout the world.After 11460 years, only a quarter remains, and so forth.On the other hand, the atmosphere fixes carbon during photosynthesis, similar to the carbon cycle.Information brochure (pdf) See the main projects of the Radiocarbon dating laboratory Click here to consult the database containing the results of radiocarbon datings carried out bij the KIK-IRPA or to input samples for dating.Please note that to apply for a dating you also have to send us an official order form.In other words, the radiocarbon dating method measures how much of radiocarbon is still present.
The analyses are based on Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS).As well as the AMS facility, the Rafter Radiocarbon Laboratory operates a modern, well equipped sample processing laboratory.The Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory in Lund performs dating on geological and archaeological samples.This dating service provides support for all stages of radiocarbon dating from project design and sample choice right through to data analysis.The worlds oldest continuously operating radiocarbon laboratory, Rafter Radiocarbon, is a department within the National Isotope Centre and has a long history in radiocarbon dating.
