Archiving
Click to expand

Modular Archiving System MICROGLASS and MICROBLOCK

 

Two Models of the Storage System are available
• MICROGLASS system for dust-free storage of microscope slides
• MICROBLOCK system for dust-free storage of paraffin blocks

The casing of the cabinet is made of powder-coated sheet metal in a grayish white color (RAL 9016). It consists of a base at the bottom, the filing unit for either microscope slides or paraffin blocks, and a lid on top. Units can be stacked onto one another. The maximum stacking height is about 1.5 m, which is a total of 15 units of MICROBLOCK or 9 units of
MICROGLASS. All units are identical in width and depth, allowing the combination of both systems in one stack to save space. The drawers can be pulled out completely, making it easy to insert the material being archived at the workplace. To prevent the microscope slides and paraffin blocks from falling over when the drawer is not completely filled, a suitable separating spiral is available. All items are available separately to perfectly match the individual requirements on site.
