All Rights Reserved Terms and Conditions. Radiocarbon dating is based on the property that the activity concentration of 14C in dead tissues can be used to calculate the time that has elapsed since death occurred. Reporting time for fast handling is maximum 6 weeks but normally weeks. Very small samples less than mg are analyzed by accelerator mass spectrometry AMS. We also offer liquid scintillation analysis using an extra low background Quantulus for high precision measurements on benzene. Tamers was a director for university radiocarbon dating labs for twenty years before he commercialized radiocarbon dating analysis as Beta Analytic chairman and lab director.
