Microscope Servicing, Maintenance & Repairs

Does Your Microscope Need a Service?

Like any other optical instrument, Microscopes require servicing and regular maintenance at least once every one to two years. Taking proper care of your microscope by having it maintained, cleaned or repaired will ensure its longevity so that your images remain detail-rich and high-contrast. Without routine maintenance, you risk delaying essential repairs, which can quickly become costly. For example, microscopes have fragile components that, if neglected for an extended period of time, may even corrode.

You might also observe the accumulation of dust and other debris over time, which causes hazy images and optical aberrations that reduce image clarity. In addition, dust can easily cause permanent scratching if not cleaned regularly, resulting in an inaccurate and flawed analysis of any specimens under your microscope.

Having your microscope serviced or repaired by a NATA Accredited Repairer will ensure that it maintains optical performance for years to come, and will help to uncover any hidden issues that may prevent your images from reaching optimal clarity.
