We also provide new microscopes and accessories by Optika, Euromex and Motic on special order (Click on the manufacturer's name to view their product range directly on their website. Links open in new windows/tabs.)

We have a large and diverse stock - too many items to list, so please don't hesitate to contact us about your specific requirements!

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!
