Over the years, carbon 14 dating has also found applications in geology, hydrology, geophysics, atmospheric science, oceanography, paleoclimatology and even biomedicine.

Radiocarbon, or carbon 14, is an isotope of the element carbon that is unstable and weakly radioactive. Carbon 14 is continually being formed in the upper atmosphere by the effect of cosmic ray neutrons on nitrogen 14 atoms.

It is rapidly oxidized in air to form carbon dioxide and enters the global carbon cycle.

Plants and animals assimilate carbon 14 from carbon dioxide throughout their lifetimes.

1 kg in poly bottle 10, 50, 100, 500 g in poly bottle 5 kg in poly drum Prepared using heat shock fractionation Serum albumin may be referred to as Fraction V.

This naming convention is taken from the original Cohn method of fractionating serum proteins using cold ethanol precipitation.

Others have used this term to describe serum albumin purified by ethanol fractionation methods that have been highly modified since the original Cohn method was described.

Sigma-Aldrich manufactures and distributes serum albumins purified from a variety of primary methods including the true Cohn fractionation method, modified ethanol fractionation methods, heat shock and chromatography.
