We provide the following analytical services:

  • cross-sectional stratification analysis
    • determining coatings history
    • basic materials analysis (we also work together with conservation scientist for in-depth materials analysis)
    • using UV and visible light microscopy with our Nikon 80i fluorescence and polarized light microscope with Excelis MPX-20RC CMOS camera and Captavision Plus software
  • wood identification
    • microscopically (with a dedicated Amscope T670Q-PL microscope with 10MP camera)
    • macroscopically with 10x loupe or by eye
  • solubility testing
