Educational Microscopes have some unique requirements. Good optics are a must, but they also should be rugged, user-friendly, easy to move around, and reliable! After careful consideration, we have chosen three main lines of new student microscopes: Labomed from India; Motic from China; and Meiji Techno from Japan. These are reputable brands that offer good quality at competitive prices. However, where you buy can be as important as what you buy. As one of the oldest and most trusted microscope distributors in the US, we inspect every microscope that we sell in order to catch and correct any problems before delivering them to our customers. If you are outfitting a biology lab, contact us to discuss your specific requirements and for quantity pricing, and put our 70 years of experience to work for you!
