College and University Tips & Additional Information
When choosing an advanced microscope for college and university applications or studies, there are several factors that need to be considered before purchase. Advanced microscopes are used for research and scientific applications, so the quality and precision of the instrument is of utmost importance.
For any purchase, make sure to take price, optical quality and durability into consideration. Avoid making impulsive decisions based solely on the price of the instrument. Low prices have quite an appeal, enticing buyers to purchase without first doing some research.
Know exactly what you want, and know who you are buying from before purchasing your microscope.
A. What type of application/setting do you need the instrument for?
  • What type of setting will it be used in?
  • Will it be a multi-user environment in a college/university laboratory?

  • Will any additional parts or accessories be needed?
B. Who are you buying from?
  • Is the supplier a reputable dealer?
  • Do they have a thorough understanding of microscopy?
  • Do they offer technical support or on-site setup?
