DUE TO COVID-19, MATSON'S LAB WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Rely on the lab trusted by wildlife professionals worldwide.
Established in 1969, Matson’s Laboratory provides histological lab services to the wildlife community, including cementum age analysis. Our histological preparation methodology has become a standard in wildlife age analysis for researchers and wildlife management authorities around the world. Matson’s Laboratory has developed cementum aging techniques for nearly all common North American mammals. We take pride in knowing that the ages we provide to biologists and researchers will be used to manage and conserve wildlife populations worldwide.
Work is done entirely on a custom basis on specimens sent to us by our clients. We work for wildlife research/management agencies in most North American states and Canadian provinces as well as other countries. We accept specimens from any private research organization or government agency, and also from private individuals (hunters, outfitters, taxidermists) within the U.S.
