Miami, Florida (PressExposure) October 11, 2011 -- Radiocarbon dating lab Beta Analytic, Inc. is one of the sponsors of the XIII Congresso da Associação Brasileira de Estudos do Quaternário (ABEQUA) underway in Armação dos Búzios, Brazil. Beta Analytic Operations Manager for Latin America Martin Tesini is representing the company at the six-day event, which ends October 14, 2011. ABEQUA is the Association for Quaternary Studies in Brazil.
"I am glad to meet both current and potential clients at this congress. Many of them are still not aware of our sample forwarding office in Sao Paulo, which opened earlier this year. Quaternary researchers in Brazil will be happy to know that they don't have to wait for months to get their radiocarbon dating results. Beta Analytic's standard AMS turnaround time has been further reduced from 20 business days to 14 business days. Expedited services are also available. Moreover, our ISO 17025-accredited results already include Carbon-13/Carbon-12 measurements and calendar calibration when applicable," Mr. Tesini says.
Around 600 professionals from various fields of earth sciences are expected to attend the event held at the Hotel Atlântico Búzios. Nine plenary sessions, three fieldtrips, and several exhibitions, workshops, and mini-courses have been scheduled for this year's event. The congress is contemporaneous with the III Encontro do Quaternário Sulamericano (III Meeting of South American Quaternary). The theme of the joint event is "The South American Quaternary: Challenges and Perspectives."
ABEQUA is a scientific, non-profit organization established in 1984 to promote Quaternary studies in Brazil.
