Sample submission

OSL and IRSL dating can be done at the Lund Luminescence Laboratory. For further information incl. pricing and research collaboration, please contact Helena Alexanderson. Sample submission should only be done after prior agreement with the lab; our capacity, particularly for large sample batches, is unfortunately limited. We can also provide advice on sampling, and sample tubes can be borrowed if needed. To make sure the analyses will be as good as possible, you must provide the necessary data for each sample on the sample submission form.
