AMS dating lab Beta Analytic is inviting members of the Society of American Archaeology (SAA) to join the raffle at Booth #300 during the 84th SAA Annual Meeting to be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from April 10-14, 2019.  The lab’s VP of Lab Operations Chris Patrick, VP for Business Development and Strategy Florencia Goren, Marketing Specialist Haley Gershon, and Account Manager Tamara Armstrong will also be available to offer advice for any projects.

The winner of this year’s raffle will receive a voucher for one standard radiocarbon date worth US$595 (standard turnaround time of 14 business days).

“We are excited to join the 84th Annual SAA meeting where we will promote our radiocarbon dating service available for samples such as bone & teeth, charcoal and wood. In conjunction with carbon-14 dating, our stable isotope analysis is available for non-cremated bones, carbonates, water and various organic materials. Our AMS dating fees for non-cremated bones are inclusive of d13C measurements, d15N measurements, %C, %N and C:N ratio,” Ms. Gershon states.

Beta Analytic consistently supports the SAA by joining its annual meetings as an exhibitor.
