Sample Preparation Lab

All samples for stable isotope and trace element analysis and Uranium Series chronology are milled/drilled/cut in the Sample Preparation Lab.  The lab is equipped with a New Wave Research micro-mill for high-resolution, continuous sampling and high precision trench drilling for U-Th dating, a laminar flow hood for manual U-Th sampling, and a macro-mill set-up for high-resolution, continuous milling of larger samples.
