Highlighting the convenience of sending samples to a lab for Carbon-14 dating and stable isotope analysis, Beta Analytic invites attendees of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2017 Fall Meeting to visit its booth. Beta Analytic Deputy Director and Quality Manager Ron Hatfield and North American Operations Manager Brett Brell will be available for inquiries at Booth 2147 during the five-day event to be held at the The Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, starting December 11.
“With just one set of water samples, we can provide them Carbon-14 and stable isotope δ13C, δ18O and δD measurements. With our clients’ convenience in mind, we will continue to find more analyses to complement our core services,” Mr. Bell says.
The ISO 17025-accredited lab will also promote a new service called “nitrate source tracking” for water quality managers and hydrologists. The test measures the nitrogen and oxygen stable isotopes in dissolved nitrates. Clients are recommended to contact Beta Analytic before collecting samples for sampling instructions. The turnaround time of this new service is 14 business days.
The AGU Fall Meeting is one of the biggest annual conference in geophysical sciences, drawing in thousands of earth and space scientists for presentations, exhibitions, and networking. This year, the AGU expects more than 24,000 participants from 113 countries. The meeting brings the worldwide scientific community together for discussions on the latest trends and breakthroughs.
Beta Analytic supports the AGU through exhibiting and advertising.
Based in Washington, D.C., AGU is a nonprofit scientific association comprised of more than 60,000 members working on various topics covering the Earth and space sciences. The AGU is committed to advancing humanity’s knowledge of these topics by publishing scientific journals, sponsoring meetings, and supporting education programs, among others. The association’s ideals are built upon valuing the scientific method, disseminating knowledge, free exchange of ideas, respect for diversity, accountability to the public, and excelling in everything they undertake.
Using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) technology, Miami-based Beta Analytic provides accurate and precise radiocarbon dating with a standard turnaround time of 14 business days. The lab can provide faster C14 analysis through its time-guide service; results are reported in 2-3 business days. The service is applicable to most materials except bones.
Aside from radiocarbon dating, the lab also provides stable isotope analysis of various materials including carbonates, non-cremated bones and water. For materials that do not need pretreatment, clients can obtain their results in 7 business days. For materials that need pretreatment like bones, the turnaround time is 14 business days.
For price inquiries, please contact the lab using this contact form. The lab also needs these data – currency, services required (radiocarbon dating or stable isotope analysis), the number of samples, and material type (wood, charcoal, soil, etc.)
