Instrument status

AMS Instrument (HVE 1MV accelerator) is operational.

23-05-2017. The EA-IRMS system is operational and up to speed. The Dual-inlet is not working to our satisfaction. We are awaiting further leak tests and technical support.

This will delay our reporting of mortar samples where stable isotope information is essential to interpret the radiocarbon age. We do apologize for any inconvenience.


Turn around time

Current turn around time is 4 - 5 months for radiocarbon age determination.

We are working hard to improve our turn around time to 3 - 4 months. From our best estimate this can be reached by the en of 2018.


Express sample capacity

We have a limited capacity for express samples.

 For enquiries please contact

Please notice that the turn around time is conditional on the instruments status. In case of major breakdowns we may not be able to keep to schedule.
