Depending on lithologic makeup and sample condition, the Paleo Data Inc. lab can prepare from 2,000 to 4,000 feet of foram and nanno samples per day. Depending on age, preservation and the abundance of fossil content, an individual biostratigrapher can typically examine about 300 feet to 400 feet of sample a day, but Paleo Data’s coordinated and integrated team approach can typically yield analysis of between 1500 feet to 3000 feet of well section per day, providing updates on results daily or as directed. A lab manager and biostratigrapher are on call 24/7, for after hours and weekend work and consultation or questions.
