Our fees vary depending upon the microscope in need of maintenance. Due to the difficulty in evaluating a microscope without seeing it firsthand, we require you to send your microscope to our facility before we can give you an accurate quote. Our technicians will do a complete evaluation and advise you of the repair costs, and please know that you are under no obligation to repair your equipment.

In order to do a proper evaluation, microscopes and microscope parts must be disassembled and evaluated by a repair technician. There is a $50 evaluation fee for each monocular microscope and a $75 fee for each binocular microscope. Small non-optical parts such as mechanical stages require a $25 evaluation fee; all optical components such as objectives, condensers, and binocular bodies require a $50 evaluation fee. All evaluation fees will be waived & deducted off the repair estimate should you decide to have your item repaired or replaced.
