There are several labs in the Department of Anthropology that work together with our lab.
Paleoanthropology and Human Osteology Laboratory
This lab hosts a museum-quality hominin cast collection, a disarticulated human
skeletal collection and a non-human primate skeletal collection. The lab is fully equipped for comparative analysis and as a fully functioning classroom.
Surface Metrology and Tribology Lab
This lab includes a state-of-the-art Sensofar 3D non-contact optical 3D profiler, a S-Neox, which includes a high resolution CCD sensor of up to 1360×1024 pixels in combination with high resolution displays of 2560×1440. In addition, the lab includes a NextEngine 3D laser scanner with a 0.005-inch accuracy, and a high-resolution 2D scanner flatbed Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner with a resolution of 4800 dpi (Epson Dual Lens System). There is also a workstation that includes Toothfrax and Sfrax software from Surfract (Surface Metrology and Fractal Analysis), which allows for analysis of the data in Scale Sensitive Fractal Analysis (SSFA).
