About us


Founded in 2011, we are a UK-based business originating from the owner's 30-year experience as a research scientist in protistology, a consulting microscopist and a microscope collector.


We cater for the requirements of a wide range of microscopists, from professionals to amateurs, experienced users to beginners, and professional collectors to microscope enthusiasts.


We are U.K. distributors of the MRC Goren field microscope, a newly patented, high-quality instrument available in biological and mineralogical configurations. We guarantee to beat any bona-fide quote for Goren microscopes in the U.K.!


We also deal in pre-owned microscopes and accessories, especially by Zeiss (West), Zeiss Jena, Leitz, Reichert, Wild, Nikon, Olympus, older British and other quality manufacturers.
