Send us your samples!!!!

I’m pleased to announce that we are now accepting new clients! We are all caught up; turnaround time for a box of slides is back down to 2-3 weeks. So please, send us some rocks – the crew is going to mutiny if I have them clean the lab much more!!!

Not currently accepting new clients!

Due to high demand and a genuinely overwhelming workload, we are not currently accepting new clients. This is so we may continue to serve our clientele with the highest level of quality possible and we still strongly urge current customers to plan their orders with us before sending any samples. We hope to re-open the doors to new customers by August 2013.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks for looking!

We can also section ceramics…

We recently had the pleasure of sectioning some glazed porcelain pieces for our friends in the ceramics program. Shown here are micrographs of a piece of ceramic mug. We also sectioned holmium-glazed test cubes. Take a look here.
