Different optic microscopes (transmitted and reflected light) for investigating rocks samples and loose preparates, among which
Binocular microscope equipped with video/photo capabilities and carbide steel drilling mechanisms to perform high precision microscopic drilling of various lithic and biogenic materials for isotopic, trace elemental and radiometric analyses. The combination of submicron stage resolution and positional accuracy, real-time video observation and a custom designed software system allows for sampling of complex structures in skeletal and crystalline materials.

The sedimentary laboratory is a space for preparing marine and non-marine sedimentary samples for microscopy and other analyses, which require individual components or fabric specific analysis (e.g., Mass Spectrometry, trace metasls..). We carry out carful handling and sieving of biogenic and sedimentary particles of different sizes as a step of preparation for further analyses.
