AMS Dating Services

Beta Analytic uses Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) technology, which gives the most advanced precision and accuracy for Carbon-14 measurements.

The lab is based in Miami, Florida, and is the world leader in Carbon-14 analyses since 1979. It has forwarding offices in Australia, Brazil, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the UK.

Stable Isotope Analyses

Beta Analytic’s radiocarbon dating fees are inclusive of δ13C measurements by Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) and calendar calibration when applicable, δ18O for carbonates, and δD (deuterium) and δ18O for water. The lab also offers C:N, %C and %N measurements on collagen extracted from non-cremated bones in addition to δ15N and δ13C at no additional cost for samples sent for radiocarbon dating.

The lab also provides stable isotope analyses on a standalone basis.

Biobased Carbon and Natural Products Testing

Aside from radiocarbon dating, ISO/IEC 17025:2005-accredited Beta Analytic also provides biobased/renewable carbon content testing to manufacturers, product distributors, and researchers worldwide for biobased products, biofuels, waste-derived fuels and their combustion emissions (CO2 gas).

The lab also uses Carbon-14 analysis for natural product source testing on materials such as flavors, fragrances, essential oils, cosmetics and supplements to identify petrochemicals. Read More

What Difference Does a Lab’s Turnaround Time Make?

Choosing a radiocarbon dating laboratory is not always easy; there are many factors to consider and often budgetary constraints to negotiate. An important factor in decision-making is how quickly the results are reported, particularly if there are deadlines to meet.
