ANALYSIS OF BONE "COLLAGEN" EXTRACTION PRODUCTS FOR RADIOCARBON DATING

Abstract:

Archaeological bones are now routinely dated in many radiocarbon laboratories through the extraction of "collagen." Methods for "collagen" extraction vary, and several laboratories now apply an ultrafiltration step after gelatinization to extract the higher molecular weight (usually >10 or 30kDa) fraction for dating, thereby removing low molecular weight contaminants. Ultrafiltration has been demonstrated to result in products that are easier to handle and have more acceptable C:N ratios, ...
