Complete sample preparation can be done here at RSES. Separation differs from sample to sample after discussion the most appropriate method will be undertaken. This will be done to suit what grains are to be analysed, what structures are to be dated, the character of the rock (e.g. gneiss or mica-schist), what method or technique is to be used for analysis and the estimated age of the rock. Costs for separation will be discussed to suit the necessary requirements.
Separated grains can also be supplied to our laboratory. We can check and prepare these grains for irradiation and analysis.
