SAVE MONEY. HAVE YOUR EXISTING MICROSCOPES REBUILT for ENHANCED PERFORMANCE
Microscopes looking old and worn out? Poor image quality and difficulty of use slowing down
production areas? We offer complete rebuild services to bring your microscopes to like new
condition. We do not just mask off areas of the microscope and spray paint. This can lead to
paint over-spray going into the optics and focus mechanisms, that is not a rebuild (barely
qualifies as a refinish). We disassemble, mask & refinish, completely rebuild, align and final
test before returning to our customer. We can also upgrade your microscope during the rebuild.
What do we rebuild? We rebuild most makes and models of microscopes. We have been trained on most microscope models from nearly all microscope manufacturers. We are factory authorized by NIKON and OLYMPUS and stock replacement parts for most Olympus and Nikon models. Older and obsolete models are our specialty. We have many repair parts for very old models in our inventory.
Strip and refinish body components
Clean and re-lubricate zoom system using synthetic, long life greases
Clean all internal optical components
Inspect for worn or defective items
Perform optical alignment: parfocality, parcentration, and overall centration
Verify optical alignment using factory provided reference standards
Strip frame and stage components
Refinish using high-solids Polyurethane paint
Inspect mechanical components of fine and coarse focus mechanism for wear
Clean and re-lubricate focus system using synthetic, long life greases
Clean and re-lubricate (using synthetic lubricants) and adjust mechanical components:
- X/Y stage ,coarse/fine focus, brightfield/darkfield controls, field/aperature/filter controls,
camera viewport, interpupillary, and diopter controls.
Inspect and clean optical surfaces (objectives, eyepieces, tube(telan) lense, filters, reticles)
Overhaul the illumination system (see options below)
Align optical using factory provided reference standards
OPTIONAL REBUILD ITEMS
Refinish X/Y stage with hard teflon coating for chemical resistance

MICROSCOPE REBUILD RATES (repair parts are additional)
Contact us with your microscope information and quantities. There are many makes and models of microscopes making it very difficult to
provide a fixed general cost. We will be happy to provide you with a quotation at no charge.
We may be able to provide an advanced exchange rebuilt model in some cases depending on current inventory.
Turn-around time is usually 1-2 weeks depending on the services desired.
On-site installation and training is available.

Rebuilt microscopes have a 2 year labor warranty from the date the rebuild was performed. Please note that should a problem arise with the microscope during this coverage period, necessary services will be performed at no labor charge in a prompt manner (the shipping charges or travel charges are not included in the warranty and would be billable). All parts needed for repairs and maintenance are additional. Exceptions to warranty are for microscope services needed due to abuse, tampering, and drop damage. These are not covered under the warranty and will be quoted and billed separately.
