Bone Policies


Bone is a highly complex matrix of mineral and organic material that has unpredictable collagen preservation, and as such does not qualify for our “No Date, No Charge” policy. A processing fee of $150 will be assessed if the collagen extraction fails to yield sufficient material for AMS measurement.  If the extracted collagen appears to be of marginal quality, DirectAMS will contact the Submitter before proceeding to analysis for approval to pursue the radiocarbon date.  If approved, the full cost of analysis will be assessed even if the sample fails to produce data.
