5 Tips for Selecting a Used Microscope

  1. Determine the microscope that fits your need: What type of speciments will you be looking at? Do you require a specific magnification or illumination?
  2. If replacing a microscope, ensure the new one is configured identically in terms of viewing head, objectives, eyepieces, and other components.
  3. Confirm that all parts and components are genuine to ensure the microscope will perform as expected.
  4. Verify the microscope's service history and choose a dealer with factory-trained technicians. Reputable dealers provide better support and peace of mind, especially for warranties and future customization.
  5. If a used microscope's configurations does not meet your needs, request information on customization options (swapping viewing heads, objectives, and so on.)
