New lab equipment

We’ve been limited today in how much lab work we can do, because we’ve rearranged  our workspaces to make room for contractors that are upgrading and redirecting the exhaust ductwork in the ceiling. While it’s a minor inconvenience at the moment, this is the first step in a major lab equipment upgrade. We’re going to be installing two airbrasive preparation units, as well as a dust collection system. The airbrasive units will make it much easier to prepare certain specimens, especially our dinosaurs. The ductwork upgrades have to be completed before we can install the airbrasive units and dust collector.

We hope to have the entire system installed an operating by the end of the year.
