Laboratory Services

CAS has over 2,000 square feet of laboratory space in our building where we offer a full range of laboratory processing and analysis. We have established a tracking process in order to process multiple projects simultaneously and follow materials from the field to processing, cataloging, analysis, and curation. Our in-house artifact specialists offer a wide range of skills to meet a variety of analytical needs, while our experienced lab technicians can quickly and accurately prepare artifact and records collections for final curation.
