ICA opened its doors in 2013 to help satisfy the growing need for affordable radiocarbon dating analysis with a fast turn-around. Since opening, ICA has dated thousands of carbon-14 samples for hundreds of clients from all over the world that have trusted us with their analyses. We can accurately date your samples applying strict pre-treatments and quality control protocols. We understand that in radiocarbon dating, each sample is unique. For this reason, ICA treats each one of your samples with special care to determine the best applicable protocol. ICA created the “No Date, No Charge” policy, which has been partially copied by other radiocarbon dating labs around the world. We are ready to precisely date all your samples in 10 business days or less and at a very affordable price.
 
 
 
     
 
 
CHARCOALS/WOODS
 
CARBONATES
 
 
 
 
 
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 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
 
BONES
 
 
 
 
 
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.
 
ICA can perform pretreatment of all types of bones (cremated, charred, or unburned). Collagen extraction through a slow dilute acid digestion, followed by AAA is the typical unburned bone pretreatment. ICA recommends at least 500 mg of bone to be sent for analysis.
