RE: [Histonet] Countertop Color

From:"Smith, Allen"

A black countertop (or a sheet of black paper) makes it easier to detect
bubbles under a freshly-mounted coverslip.

We recently moved into our new lab and we have black countertops.  The
one thing that I have noticed in paraffin REALLY is a glaring contrast
and makes the lab look slightly messy at all times........

I had wanted a lighter color (a grey), but black was less expensive so
we had to go with that color.
