The following services are provided by the DATU Laboratory.
Analytical services are conducted on historical and archaeological samples, as well as on new productions.
Our analytical services include:
Our laboratory is accreditated to provide analysis on dyestuff and pigment analysis, structure determination and elemental analyses.
Based on the results of accredited methods of analysis, our Laboratory issues certificates on originality/authenticity for historical artifacts and on natural dyes for new productions.
The data obtained by means of non-destructive and micro-analysis methods determine the general condition of the object, morphological structure, and the conservation methods that can be applied for each object. Since the chemical and physical properties of each object are different, so are the conservation processes that need to be applied.
