Re: Glass coverslippers

In response to khbarr's question:

There is not coverslipper in the world that will work well with little
maintenance and/or normal upkeep.  The key is to maintain the machine as you
would any other lab equipment and the machine will last you 10+ years.
Well, maybe not all machines but we have the Hacker/Meisei coverslippers
that are both going on 10 years old-they are still working fabulously (with
the proper maintenance, of course).  We are big fans of Hacker Instruments
because of their quality and excellent customer service.
