Wood Laboratory

Investigations on the genus and species of wood, its resistance, the type and degree of its degradation are carried out for material characterization of historical and modern wood samples, identification of the present states of their degradation and for the adjustment of appropriate conservation methods. The following tests and analyses are carried out for these investigations.


  • Species Identification
  • Resistance Determination
  • Determination of wood microstructure numerically and with imaging by ultrasonic and tomography instruments.
  • Dating by annual tree ring measurements (Dendrochronology).



  • Leica-RM2235 Manual Rotary Microtome for Wood Sectioning
  • Eurosit Wood Hammer
  • Rinntech Resistograph
  • Rinntech Lintab
  • Arbotom Tomograph
