The Paytan Lab at UC Santa Cruz recently moved into the much larger space of the what used to be the Electron Microscopy lab in the Earth & Marine Science building. This large lab space is now being used for general sample prep and analysis, foram counting, phophorous analysis and barite sample preparation. There are also a number of adjoining rooms that are being used for glassware cleaning/waste storage, sample storage, and a small student office space. In addition, we are still using a connected lab room for radium-counting, and an upstairs room for staging field trip preparation.
