Facilities - Biomolecular Archaeology Chemistry Preparation Laboratories
In these laboratories we prepare samples for a wide range of biochemical/biomolecular analyses. This includes the extraction of bone and tooth proteins for stable isotope analysis (C,N,S,H,O), bone mineral and tooth enamel for oxygen isotope measurements, as well as proteins for characterization and sequencing. We also have dedicated laboratories for sample cleaning/drilling, extraction (including HF fume cupboards) as well as the range of basic equipment for preparation and initial analysis (e.g. centrifuges, heating blocks, freeze dryer, ultrasonic baths, sandblaster and a HPLC).
