The Italian Cup is a disposable cup for sample presentation and is your choice for the analysis of any viscous sample that prevents you from reusing cups for sanitary reasons. Introduced mainly to analyse human and animal faeces it is possible to use this cup for many other applications that do not allow you to use standard cups. The samples are analysed in reflexion. The sample is applied to the centre of the cup and then covered with an microscope slide. By placing the slide onto the sample, any sample surplus overflows into the surrounding groove. Thus, a homogeneous and bubble free sample is prepared to guarantee optimal analysis results.
