PRICE LIST



MAIN PRODUCT LIST -  last updated on January 2018


Diatom Lab offers STATE-OF-THE-ART MICROSCOPE SLIDES produced using the NEW, NEVER PUBLISHED, UNIQUE, PROFESSIONAL, MODERN, LATEST DIATOM LAB'S TECHNIQUES AND FORMULAS! (PLEASE READ ALL THE TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS IN THE HOME PAGE) You'll have the BEST CONDITIONS FOR EXCELLENT RESOLUTION AND CONTRAST, for example Diatom frustules are attached / fixed to the UNDERSIDE of a PROPERLY THICK COVER GLASS  (and not commonly on the microscope slide!), although this procedure requires special manufacturing precautions! Furthermore, mounting to the underside of the cover glass permits to easily use oil immersion objectives too (even those with very short free working distance, such as 63x/1,4 or 100x/1,4) as there is no space between diatoms and cover glass!

Diatom Lab was created to show the beauty, importance and power of microscopic nature to amaterus and scientists during an era of many superficial values. Diatom Shop's products require much accuracy, precision and time during (and before) their realization: although Diatom Lab works with the latest techniques, mountants and research microscopes, it doesn't differ much from a Nineteenth-century scientific laboratory company, so your purchase will help to keep this ancient craft still alive today!

Before payment you will always receive an email with attached the photographs and photomicrographs of the products you've ordered: WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET!

Diatom Lab (Diatom Shop) works with honesty, accuracy and transparency. You'll always receive a paper INVOICE (if you are a business company) or a paper TAX RECEIPT (if you are a private customer) 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 microscope mailer cases, bubble wrap and paddled packages: customers of Diatom Lab (Diatom Shop) live in USA, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa!

Payments are possible using PayPal (no PayPal account needed, just a credit card!) or bank transfer!

Diatom Shop sells its special products online (by email order) or more rarely through the business eBay page http://www.ebay.com/usr/diatomshop (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!).  Please read the 100% POSITIVE eBay FEEDBACKS at the following link: eBay feedbacks
