AA Medical has developed a range of storage solutions for micro slides and paraffin wax blocks. We have also developed specialist storage and display applications over the years; for example, we have made solutions for:

  • Butterfly entomology specimen slides that needed to be stored horizontally
  • Very wide glass slides that needed to be filed flat and held still for soft specimens
  • Filing of unusual objects such as tiny specimen jars
