What Is AMS?

National Resource for Biomedical Accelerator Mass Spectrometry

The National Resource for Biomedical Accelerator Mass Spectrometry was established to make AMS available to biomedical researchers who need to accurately measure very low levels of 14C and other radioisotopes. The Resource is also working to enhance AMS for analysis of radioisotopes in biomedical tracer studies through development of new methods and instrumentation.
