Visit the Home Page to read the 10 REASONS DIATOM LAB PREPARATIONS ARE SO INNOVATIVE (You can save PDF file "The 10 reasons Diatom Lab preparations are so innovative" by this link)

Diatom Lab counts many important research centres, universities, colleges, environmental organizations and microscope companies from all around the world among its customers, in addition to hundreds of private customers of course. Just for example you can read the contract signed with the Italian National Research Council or CNR (https://www.cnr.it/en) by this link: http://www.urp.cnr.it/copertine/ente/ente_evidenza/gare_2018/ISASI_011_det.pdf
The other numerous client companies from all over the world are not public bodies, therefore they cannot be listed here for privacy reasons. Diatom Shop sells its special products online (by email order) or more rarely through the business eBay page http://www.ebay.com/usr/diatomshop to promote the products to private customers (the eBay account name is diatomshop and starting prices are often symbolic as most bids happen in the final minutes or seconds of each auction. Almost every week Diatom Shop sells many very rare Diatoms on eBay).  Please read more than a thousand 100% positive eBay feedbacks at the following link: eBay feedbacks . The company receives a lot of emails and letters of appreciation by direct customers too!

Before payment you will always receive an email with the images of the micromanipulations you've ordered. What you see is what you get!

Diatom Lab works with honesty, accuracy and transparency. You'll always receive a proper invoice with every purchase.

All parcels are fully tracked
, so that you can check the progress of your items through to delivery. Diatom Lab (Diatom Shop) safely ships WORLDWIDE, using special microscope slide protective cases, bubble wrap and well padded packages. We have customers in many countries including the UK, USA, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania, and look forward to working with you!

SELECTED AND MICROMANIPULATED DIATOMS: MICROSCOPE SLIDES
(All prices include taxes and fees. Worldwide shipping by registered international parcel: 10,90 euros)

COMPARISON SLIDE: microscope slide with one micromanipulated Pennate Diatom (bilaterally symmetric) and one micromanipulated Centric Diatom (radially symmetric), mounted in the excellent Diatom Cubed mountant. (See example in DIC on the side) Only the best, cleanest, unbroken specimens are hand selected! All Micromanipulated Diatoms are guaranteed to be fixed directly to the UNDERSIDE of the custom optical quality cover glass (and not as-is common, on the microscope slide) for maximum resolution and contrast! The reason for this: microscope objective performance drops quickly noticeably as the specimen distance from the cover glass increases. Microscope objective lenses are designed to be optimally corrected for objects located immediately below the coverslip!

DIATOM TEST SLIDES (for optical microscopes): MICROSCOPE SLIDES WITH MICROMANIPULATED TEST DIATOMS
Venture into the Micro and Nano structures!
(All prices include taxes and fees. Worldwide shipping by registered international parcel: 10,90 euros)

These products are extremely useful to
A) compare objectives, condensers, microscopes and optical microscope illumination techniques such as bright field, oblique illumination, differential interference contrast (DIC), phase contrast, dark field, polarized light, Rheinberg illumination and Hoffman modulation contrast!
B) practice using your microscopes at their highest levels!
C) determine the resolving power of your microscope (the resolving power of a microscope is measured by its ability to differentiate two lines or points in an object)!
D) examine the variations in contrast and resolution by regulating the condenser aperture diaphragm
E) understand the importance of correction collar for minimazing spherical aberration
F) examine the variations in resolution by using different wavelengths of light
These Test microscope slides are standardized, in fact each microscope slide has the same production characteristics, please read the important Technological innovations in the Home page

DIATOM TEST SLIDE VERSION 2.0, for dry and oil immersion objectives, WITH 5 MICROMANIPULATED DIATOM SPECIES
(Venture into the Micro and Nano structures!)
This microscope slide contains the following Micromanipulated Diatoms:
Stauroneis phoenicenteron (for Dry objectives),
Gyrosigma attenuatum (for Dry and Oil immersion objectives),
Gyrosigma reimeri (for Oil immersion objectives),
Navicula oblonga (for Double immersion = Oil immersion objective and Oil immersion condenser),
Pinnularia nobilis (for Double immersion = Oil immersion objective and Oil immersion condenser).

Only the best, cleanest, unbroken specimens are hand selected! All Micromanipulated Diatoms are guaranteed to be fixed directly to the UNDERSIDE of the custom optical quality cover glass (and not as-is common, on the microscope slide) for maximum resolution and contrast! The reason for this: microscope objective performance drops quickly noticeably as the specimen distance from the cover glass increases. Microscope objective lenses are designed to be optimally corrected for objects located immediately below the coverslip!
