Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory

The Waikato Radiocarbon Dating 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 research grants (Marsden and MBIE), and supports School of Science/Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science (HECS) research programmes. Staff in the unit are actively involved in palaeoclimate and archaeological research and have a leading role in international calibration programmes.
