SUBMISSION INFO AND PRICE LIST


The service of Poznań Radiocarbon Laboratory includes sample preparation, AMS 14C measurement, calculation of conventional 14C age and calibration of 14C date (for ages within range of the calibration curve, for archaeological samples - "automatically", for other samples - on request).

Samples forwarded for 14C dating in our Laboratory must registered in our database. Registration may be performed by a client himself - using our on-line sample registration form. Alternatively, sample may be registered by our personnel, if the submitted sample is accompanied with description, prepared on our sample information sheet1.

Additionally, the submitted sample must be accompanied with:

point2.png written order, stating name, address of ordering institution, and the total price you're ready to pay
point2.png EU VAT number of the ordering institution,
or a declaration that this institution is not a payer of VAT in its country2
point2.png customs declaration (preferrably on our form), with the minimum "value for customs purposes"3

1 sample descriptions may be sent together with the samples, or simply by e-mailed
2 applicable when the ordering institution is from the EU country
3 applicable when the samples are sent from outside the EU


Due to a drift of the PLN/EUR exchange rate, some lowering of EUR prices appeared possible

1 the "normal precision" for AMS 14C measurement of single cathode prepared from the sample. Precision of 14C date depends on age and sample mass. For example, for samples containing more than 1 milligram of carbon and younger than 3000 years, the precision should not be worse than ±40 years.

2 improved precision dating required more cathodes to be prepared and measured with AMS. The number of cathodes and corresponding price must be negotiated individually.
3 for particular job, discount for persistent customers depends on the total number of dates ordered by the particular sample submitter or bought by the particular institution (whichever the bigger) during the current calendar year plus the year preceding arrival of samples for the current job.

The turnover time is the time between samples' arrival to our lab and age reporting to the sample submitter
