Paleo3 Service Center

We welcome collaborators and external users interested in any of our facilities!

We happily provide δ13C and δ18O analyses on carbonates for outside users by contract.

Due to the time-intensive nature of clumped isotope and phytolith analyses and the rapidly evolving specifics of these methods, we cannot perform traditional “contract” work these types of analyses.  However, we are happy to collaborate with outside workers in order to plan analyses, host trainees or analyze samples, and participate in discussing and interpreting data.

If you are interested in working with us on any of these fronts, please contact us ( or to discuss your project!



Our current recharge rate for δ13C and δ18O analyses is: $12.50 per sample

Our current recharge rate for clumped isotopes is: $85 per sample

Our current recharge rate for phytoliths is: $35 per sample



Please contact Dr. Ethan Hyland ( to schedule facilities use or inquire about running samples with us.

Our current turnaround time for requests at present is roughly: 3 months
