Majority of Beta Analytic’s clients are from universities, government agencies, and environmental companies. Today Beta Analytic is headed by Darden Hood, President, and Dr. Deputy directors Ronald Hatfield and Chris Patrick, who joined the company in 19 respectively, manage the labs.
With their extensive experience in all aspects of radiocarbon dating, they supervise a team of professional technicians and ensure that quality control is maintained at all levels.
Prices in all major currencies Depending on your region, the lab can provide prices in AUD, EUR, GBP, INR, RMB, TWD, KRW, and USD.
Convenient shipping to multiple forwarding facilities The lab has forwarding offices in London, UK; North Sydney, Australia; São Paulo, Brazil; Beijing and Xiamen, China; Pune, India; Nagoya, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; and Taipei, Taiwan.
The AMS instruments are the newest state-of-the art technology designed specifically for radiocarbon measurement.
Beta Analytic currently owns multiple accelerator mass spectrometers, each capable of 25 to 30 sample analyses per day.
About AMS Dating Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) dating involves accelerating ions to extraordinarily high kinetic energies followed by mass analysis.
Radiocarbon Dating Groundwater The application of radiocarbon dating to groundwater analysis can offer a technique to predict the over-pumping of the aquifer before it becomes contaminated or overexploited.
All analyses performed internally by full-time professionals The lab has a dedicated full-time staff of technicians and scientists working overtime, if necessary, to meet its promised delivery times.Sequential injection of Carbon-14, Carbon-13, and Carbon-12 allow for calculation of age both using Carbon-14/Carbon-12 and Carbon-14/Carbon-13 ratios.Simultaneous accumulation of the Carbon-14/Carbon-12, Carbon-14/Carbon-13, and Carbon-13/ Carbon-12 ratios ensure ongoing quality control during the detection; the calculation of each provides three different measures to ensure isotope pathway is stable during the analysis.The lab does not engage in “satellite dating” – the practice of preparing individual graphite samples in remote chemistry labs then subcontracting to an AMS facility for the measurement.Unlimited technical consultation Beta Analytic’s research associates and technical managers welcome discussion before, during, and after the analyses. Secure online access to results, sample photos, and quality assurance reports Clients have online access to results from any device and can download calibration and QA reports 24/7 via the mobile-responsive results portal on the lab’s website.Each instrument has two SNICS (Source of Negative Ions by Cesium Sputtering) ion sources.
