Sample types

CHARCOALS / WOODS

For charcoals, woods, peats, or other materials of similar carbon content, ICA recommends a minimum of 5 mg for analysis. These samples usually undergo acid/base/acid pretreatment (AAA) prior to graphitization. Acid/base concentrations, temperatures, and times are sample specific.

CARBONATES

Carbonates include shells, corals, and tufas. It is recommended that a minimum of 10 mg be sent for analysis. These samples usually undergo a light acid etch (AE) pretreatment. These samples may require local reservoir correction in some cases, so a Delta-R value may be necessary.

SEDIMENTS

Sediments can undergo various pretretments depending on what type of sediment it is. Depending on what the client requests, bulk organics, humic acids, and/or carbonates from a sediment can be pretreated and analyzed.

BONES

ICA can perform pretreatment of all types of bones (cremated, charred, or unburned) ICA recommends at least 500 mg of bone to be sent for analysis.
