*This price is for the alpha spectrometry method, which we find is much more efficient than gamma spectrometry and the background noise is virtually zero. The end result is a 210Pb profile, with relatively small error bars, from which reliable sedimentation rates can be estimated. In favourable cases we can use gamma spectrometry should accuracy be less important.
