The 14CHRONO Centre analyses a wide variety of carbon containing samples using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) 14C to provide radiocarbon ages or fractions of modern carbon. We also provide AMS 14C analyses for archaeological companies, forensic investigations and industries interested in monitoring bio- vs. fossil based components. We collaborate with researchers around the world to construct radiocarbon calibration curves to convert radiocarbon ages to 'calendar' ages. We also provide databases (IntCal, Marine Radiocarbon Reservoir Correction) and software for analysis of radiocarbon ages (CALIB, clam, Bacon, CALIBomb). This RII is the only AMS facility on the island of Ireland and one of 4 in the UK. We are noted for high quality results with a relatively quick turnaround time and low cost.
