About Us

Micro-Optics began in 1978 as a small shop dealing in used microscopes. In the years since, we have expanded to include a wide variety of new microscopes and illumination systems from major manufacturers like Zeiss, Nikon, Leica, Meiji, Monolux, Motic, National Optical, Diagnostic Instruments, Qioptiq, Optronics, and Schott.

Caring about the people we work for and the quality of our products and service has been our dedicated philosophy since we began nearly 40 years ago.

It’s a difficult concept to convey without being overly sentimental but it’s a fact of our existence. Our concern for the kind of service we give you insures positive experience for everyone. Quality and a positive experience – this is what we have built our business and reputation on.

As highly trained optical repair people, we knew that we could fill a vital need for providing used instruments which were fully reconditioned and fully guaranteed.

As sales and our reputation grew, so did our requests for service and repairs.

To accommodate that need, we have continually sought out and acquired professionals with extensive experience in microscopes and optics from several major manufacturers. Thus, Micro-Optics has become a leader in our field.

Our innovations include Video Microscopy systems, individually tailored microscope maintenance programs, a long standing representative for Zeiss Micro systems.

On this website you will note that our range of products and service has changed since 1978. One thing, however, has remained the same. When you call Micro-Optics, you will talk to someone who is both knowledgeable and caring.
