Sample Preparation Tiles, Trimming Boards and Cutting Mats

 

Overview

Sample preparation is an integral part of all disciplines of microscopy. For samples which have to be cut, processed and prepared, it is imperative to work on a clean, smooth and contamination-free dedicated preparation surface, appropriate for the task at hand. Dedicated preparation surface protect tools and/or the lab bench. Standard laboratory bench surfaces are not always ideal for sample preparation and can be easily damaged with cutting tools. The Micro-Tec selection of preparation tiles, trimming boards and cutting mats offer a comprehensive choice of sample preparation surfaces for a wide range of applications:
