Hi everyone,

I would like to know if anyone has standards (from any country!) regarding the ideal amount of space for a microtomy workbench eg:

  *   If facing a wall: dept usually required.
  *   Width of individual counter space which would include the microtome, floatation bath, rack for cut sections. (blocks kept cold in fridgitray nearby)
  *   Suggested dept underneath working counter (towards the back for leg room)

Any other suggestion or elements to take into account when designing microtomy benches?

Thank you very much in advance for any precious advice!
