flooring for histopathology lab

From:"Mack, Jacquie"

We are in the process of planning for a new lab.  I was wondering what type of flooring other labs are using.  Do you have non-slip flooring? If so, do you encounter any problems cleaning the paraffin off the surface?  Can it be scraped? How are they to clean? Do you have anti-fatigue mats?  We have grossing area, embedding area, special stains, Immunohistochemistry, and a main cutting area to consider.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
