If you work with picric acid (or Bouin's) in the lab, don't go with concrete. Picric acid reacts strongly on contact with concrete. Weird, huh?

What type of floor surface would you pick if you could design your own histology lab?
I was walking through Costco the other night and noticed theirs is just concrete. Compensating for leg fatigue on the Assistants who have to stand, I'm thinking this type of surface might be easiest to keep clean. What do you think about just concrete? Would there need to be a paraffin scrape nightly? Would that be enough? If paraffin is tracked in the morning will this type of floor be slippy (Pittsburgh slang) by 3pm?
What flooring do you have and what drawbacks and advantages do you see with it?
Many thanks and no skids!
