Stubs for specimen mounting
  • Stubs used for mounting specimens are considered a personal, consumable item in the KNI. There are some stubs at each Microscope which can be used by any KNI microscopy user. You can also buy your own stubs so that you can keep them clean and available to you. There are many stub geometries and configurations. If you chose to buy your own stubs, please show them to the staff microscopist prior to using them: some stubs including stubs with copper clips have large height differences and can only be used safely in specific operating conditions.
