Otolith Challenge

Otoliths are small organic samples in the size range up to 10.0 mm. Revealing the series of layers with just 50 µm spacing on these tiny and brittle samples is challenging for the preparation method from cutting to polishing.


A reproducible and gentle materialographic method is reached by precision  multi-cutting to thin sections of a series of mounted otoliths. Grinding and polishing is done in semi-automatic equipment to optimize reproducibility.
