Preparation tiles and mats

Specimen preparation is an integral part of all disciplines in microscopy. For specimens 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 in hand. Dedicated preparation surfaces protect your tools and/or the lab bench. Standard laboratory bench surfaces are not always ideal for specimen preparation and can be easily damaged with cutting tools.
