We're in business making great thin sections primarily for the satisfaction we get from doing beautiful work. Consistent quality is intrinsic to this style of business, which is how we have earned and preserved our outstanding reputation.  
"I'd really like you to make [my] thin sections because you're dam good at it. The last time you were 'overbooked' I sent some to another place, paid too much and the sections sucked."
"In keeping with the high quality of the rest of [our] program we chose your laboratory to provide all the thin section work. Without exception all the thin sections are of the highest quality we have ever seen. They are truly marvelous and could almost be considered works of art. We are completely satisfied with your product and are going to recommend you to all of our colleagues and friends. We look forward to continuing to work with you on this project and many more in the future."
  We believe all thin sections should be works of art, not just slices of rock slapped onto slides. Works of art require talent, patience, and -- above all -- time. We have the talent and patience -- and take time -- to insure our thin sections are the best. We simply will not churn out hastily-prepared, inferior slides. Our experience and customer feedback has taught us that much more time and frustration are saved in the long run when decent sections are provided in the first place. We're sure that when you see our work you will be impressed by the craftsmanship and pleasantly surprised at how much more data are obtained faster with less trouble...and how much better the results of your analyses can be.
We help meet your deadlines by offering three expedited turnaround options: RUSH, PRIORITY and STANDARD PLUS (see price list for details). We recognize constraints of budget as well as time and are willing to work with you to accommodate both. Let us know how we can help.  
"I have been very pleased in the past with the quality of the thin sections you have made. It makes a difference to those of us who spend hours at the microscope to have good sections to start with."
