Beta Analytic & Isobar Science

Miami-based Beta Analytic is an ISO 17025-accredited radiocarbon dating laboratory, which also provides stable isotope analysis for several materials, including sediments. The lab offers two services for organic sediment – AMS Standard (turnaround time of 14 business days or less) and AMS Priority (results reported in 6 business days or less). For more information, visit Beta Analytic’s Radiocarbon Dating Sediments page.

Isobar Science provides Uranium-Thorium dating, strontium analysis and geochemical fingerprinting services, among others. The company specializes in high-precision elemental analysis of isotopes, including boron, lead, and strontium. For more information, visit
