Bones submerged in water or wet sediments – Please consult the lab before sending these bone samples.

The d13C and d15N ratios are measured using an isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS).It is possible the small sub-sample taken for the % collagen yield test is not representative of the entire bone.The % collagen yield value should not be used as a unique identifier of bone collagen quality because it can be very misleading.Antlers – Chunks, chips, and shavings are best for radiocarbon dating.If your samples are already powderized, please contact us for discussion.
