What started as a small workshop for monocles in Rochester, NY, has grown into one of the most respected multi-billion dollar healthcare companies in the world, creating products like contact lenses, vitamins for your eyes, and even Bausch & Lomb microscopes. The company started selling microscopes around 1876, which is why it’s easy to find Bausch & Lomb microscopes in unique, vintage styles.
If you’re interested in a microscope that looks like it was made in the late 19th century, look no further than our collection of antique, brass-cased, monocular microscopes. The most popular model is the American Cased Brass Microscope with Triple Lenses, made from brass, bronze, and stainless steel. All your peers and colleagues will be jealous of this authentic piece of history! It comes with a mahogany carrying case that features a lock and key, so you can keep your microscope safe while you travel.
Looking for a more traditional microscope, but not from the 19th century? You’ll love the best-selling Bausch & Lomb microscope on our website: the reconditioned Academic Stereo Zoom Microscope, perfect for students or scientific hobbyists who need to examine 3-D samples. It has two eyepieces, a rigid arm stand, and illumination on the top and bottom of the microscope so that you can see your specimens clearly and accurately.
The most popular trinocular microscope we sell from Bausch & Lomb is the Balplan Trinocular Microscope, featuring outstanding optics that make it ideal in a medical or educational setting. It sits on a graduated mechanical stage and provides control over the intensity of its light source, which is a 6V 20W bulb that we also sell separately when it’s time to replace the bulb in your microscope.
