C dating service is for samples yielding at least 0.5 mg of carbon after chemical pretreatment (often acid-alkali-acid treatment of organic material).
The precision of radiocarbon dates for recent samples (younger than 2000 years) is better than 0.4% which equals /-35 years for the 1-σ statistical uncertainty of the measured age.
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.^ Measured by CRDS (precision 0.3 per mil).
