Direct AMS does not offer further special or discounted pricing.
A (federally-funded) handling and analysis surcharge applies to small samples (2-9 µmol).
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.
The radiocarbon lab at Geochron uses gas proportional counters to measure methane derived from relatively small samples.
Sample size supposed to be recommended for analysis.
Multi-sample discounts are offered for batches of submitted samples for conventional radiocarbon dating.
A 0 (federally-funded) surcharge applies to high precision analysis (minimum batch size 5 samples). Additional fees may be assessed for preparation of samples not ready for routine processing, samples which yield no analyzable carbon or those withdrawn at client request.
Radiocarbon dating is the principal method for determining the age of carbon-bearing materials from the present to about 50,000 years ago.
