The clients had paid many thousands of dollars for the Chinese silk samples with the bird motifs and now wanted reassurance that they were indeed from the Warring States period about - B. But the news was not good. After testing them, the Rafter Radiocarbon Laboratory in New Zealand declared the samples less than 50 years old. We've all marveled at the forensic wizardry that traps villains on such TV hits as CBS's "CSI" "Crime Scene Investigation" , but dazzling science is also exposing secrets in another, more refined field-art. Armed with the latest technology, art historians are becoming cultural detectives, piecing together the puzzle of an item's past and, in the process, helping differentiate genuine from bogus.
ABOUT ICA ICA opened its doors in to help satisfy the growing need for affordable radiocarbon dating analysis with a fast turn-around. Since opening, ICA has dated thousands of carbon samples for hundreds of clients from all over the world. We understand that in radiocarbon dating. The laboratory does not undertake radiocarbon dating of: manuscripts, objects of art or other valuable or priceless items unless they are submitted and paid for by a recognized governmental agency, major museum, or other official agency investigating the materials as part of multidisciplinary scholarly process. The Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory is involved in research projects around the globe, which cover a diverse range of radiocarbon dating topics/areas.
All samples that have undergone pretreatment and subsequently found to be unsuitable for dating, or abandoned for another reason, may incur a part charge. Typically, this is NZD for pretreatment and NZD for pretreatment and combustion, but charges may vary depending on the sample type.

Applies to both Radiometric and AMS determinations. Recommended for all bone samples.

Radiocarbon dating is based on the half-life of carbon isotope 14 (written as 14 C) as it undergoes radioactive decay into the carbon isotope 12 (12 C), which is stable and does not decay. Physicists can measure the ratio of 14 C to 12 C and calculate when the organism died. Please note: *New Zealand customers please add 15GST ++ Base charges include standard pretreatment procedures, 13 C/ 12 C isotope fractionation correction and shell recrystallisation test. **Batches of samples that produce less than 5 completed radiocarbon results from overseas will incur an additional NZD35 charge. This is an inspection fee levied by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI.

Radiocarbon dating is based on the continuous decay of the radioactive isotope of carbon, 14 C. Radiocarbon is incorporated into all living organisms in proportion to its concentration in the environment.
Over the years, Beta Analytic has provided high-quality radiocarbon dating, stable isotope analysis, biobased carbon testing, renewable carbon testing of biofuels and waste-derived fuels including CO2 emissions, carbon analysis of natural products, and nitrate source tracking.
Inthe lab starts to offer specialized isotope services for geochronology, geochemical fingerprinting, and environmental source tracking through its subsidiary Isobar Science.
