Based in Miami, Florida, the Beta Analytic radiocarbon dating lab revolutionized the fields of archaeology and late quaternary geology. Prior to the company’s inception in 1979, radiocarbon dates were scarce and available only through small university laboratories. It took months and sometimes years to obtain carbon dating results. The lab’s commitment to meet the scientific community’s demand for fast yet accurate carbon dating analysis led to immediate success.

Beta Analytic was founded by Murry Tamers, Ph.D. (Yale University), D.Sc. (Universite de Paris Sorbonne) and Jerry Stipp, Ph.D. (Australian National University). They have both been instrumental in the development of radiocarbon dating methodology since 1959 and have published more than 100 papers. Dr. Tamers was a director for university radiocarbon dating labs for twenty years before he commercialized radiocarbon dating analysis as Beta Analytic chairman and lab director.

The company’s dedication to accuracy is at the core of its policies. By innovating new techniques, keeping abreast of the latest technology, and training qualified scientists to stay ahead of demand, Beta Analytic has maintained its firm commitment to quality over the years.
