Turnaround Time

The turnaround time fluctuates with demand, but radiometric dating averages 6 weeks for both techniques, typically extending to 8 weeks from November to March. Expect longer turnaround with bone samples regardless of technique.

Our Express Dating service for radiometric samples guarantees a date in 10 working days (bone = 20 working days). An express AMS service (4 weeks) is available, but it is wise to contact the laboratory first. This option is not recommended for older samples (>30, 000 years).

The turnaround time may be longer for large batches of samples.

Please note: We are closed over the Christmas, New Year and Easter periods.
