German term or phrase:Schliffmulde
Implement in a laboratory (e.g. bacteriological research): a glass plate with a dip ground into it.
Explanation: If you are referring to the small glass containers in which bacterial cultures are taken, I believe they are called "dishes". If you are referring to the small flat plates of glass on which bacterial smears are made, then "plate" may be the more appropriate term.
I am only replying because I did not see any other suggestions that I liked. I am not lab scientist.
