Radiocarbon Training Program

We encourage students, technicians, and professors to come to Ottawa to process their own samples for radiocarbon analysis. Other than covering the analytical cost, the program is free!

The program typically takes 5 days: (1) physical pretreatment, sampling, lab tour, lab safety training; (2) chemical pretreatment; (3) combustion; (4) graphitization; (5) AMS measurement.

The first 20 samples receive the normal quantity discount of 10%. After the first 20, a 20% discount is applied. There is a 5 sample minimum.
