Description of services:

The laboratory features positive air-pressure with HEPA filtered inflow, UV lighting throughout, and is equipped for work on all kinds of ancient material such as sediments, seeds, museum skins, and bones from any organism, including human.


Background

The laboratory was established after a collaborative initiative from the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis CEES, IBV, the Museum of Cultural History (KHM) and the Natural History Museum (NHM). The day-to-day management of the laboratory is the responsibility of (CEES). The laboratory has a total size of approximate 200 m2, which is divided into a range of smaller rooms that each have a dedicated purpose. It features positive air-pressure with HEPA filtered inflow, UV lighting throughout, and is equipped for work on all kinds of ancient material such as sediments, seeds, museum skins, and bones from any organism, including human.

The laboratory is currently used by several projects (see below) and we've had a number of visiting researchers using the laboratory over the last few years.
