Radiocarbon dating is the technique upon which chronologies of the late Pleistocene and Holocene have been built.
Collaboration with internationally and nationally renowned researchers from world-class tertiary institutions/laboratories including the University of Oxford (UK), the University of Exeter (UK), Macquarie University (Victoria, Australia), and Université de Savoie (France), the Gondwana Tree Ring Laboratory (Canterbury, NZ), as well as the University of Auckland and the University of Otago in New Zealand, ensure the Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory remains at the cutting-edge of the field.
We hope it will be of occasional use to radiocarbon users and interested students alike.

If all samples in a batch are unsuitable for dating, we reserve the right to charge an inspection fee of NZD50 plus the MPI fee of NZD35.
All samples that have undergone pretreatment and subsequently found to be unsuitable for dating, or abandoned for another reason, may incur a part charge.
