Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory
The Waikato Laboratory is a national facility, offering radiocarbon dates
by both radiometric methods (liquid scintillation spectrometry by Perkin Elmer
Quantulus) and accelerator mass spectrometry. The laboratory is funded from
external commercial dating services and is used to support radiocarbon dating
and School of Science and Engineering research programmes. Staff in the unit
are actively involved in palaeoclimate and archaeological research and have
a leading role in international calibration programmes.
