In summer 2004, we extended our sample preparation lines. This expansion significantly increased our throughput and reduced our turnover time.
Due to a large demand for 14C dating in our laboratory, we extended our lines for sample preparation. In detail, our vacuum lines for production of CO2 and graphitisation have been doubled.
Decision on extension was made in February 2004, the new lines were assembled in May-June, commissioned in July-August, and have been in routine use since the beginning of September 2004.
The extension significantly increased our throughput.
The new lines were assembled in an express time of six weeks.
