Sample Preparation and Analysis

At our full-service laboratory, we are able to prepare samples for nannopaleontology, micropaleontology and palynology. Palynological slides can be prepared using standard techniques including HCL and HF treatment, or proprietary state-of-the-art non-acid applications. In-house staff is available to analyze slides for all three disciplines and covering the entire Mesozoic and Cenozoic stratigraphic column. Even if you have a project in older strata, rest assured that one of the 40+ specialists at our headoffice in Wales can accommodate your request.

In-house consultation

Whether you are dealing with vintage biostratigraphic data sets, BSSE derived paleo picks, or paleo-based regional correlations, sometimes it just doesn’t seem to fit with your seismic and geologic interpretations.
Our experienced staff can help you with re-interpreting and QCing old data, checking for alternative interpretation options, preparing correlations and paleoenvironmental interpretations. We believe, that integration is key and necessary to get a realistic and satisfying solution to your problem.
