Operating Procedures

Graphite Line

One of four AMS CO2/graphite lines

The Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory determines C14 activity by radiometric (Liquid Scintillation Spectrometry) and accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS). This combined radiometric and AMS service enables greater flexibility and convenience for clients dating large and small samples.

We can advise clients of the most suitable dating method for their samples and, if necessary, samples can be converted from one technique to another without any delay.
