On site Microscope Servicing:                        Image result for cartoon microscopes engineer character

Microscope Systems Limited offer on site servicing of all types of optical microscopes. Our Olympus trained service engineer has over 30 years experience in the field.  

A microscope is an expensive investment for any company or individual to make so maintenance by a trained engineer on an annual or bi-annual basis is well worth considering. Without regular maintenance and alignment a microscope will soon begin to under perform resulting in poor analysis and sometimes costly mistakes. 

Long held service contracts include:

  • Doosan Babcock
  • UHI Perth College
  • Moredun International Research Institute
  • Q2 Solutions Limited
  • NHS Orkney
  • Glasgow Royal Infirmary Assisted Conception Service
  • BioReliance Merk
  • Rolls Wood Group
  • Glasgow University
  • MRC Virology Unit
  • Scottish Water
  • Marine Scotland
  • Hutton Institute
  • NHS Highland - Raigmore Hospital Inverness
  • University of Edinburgh
  • NHS Lothian                             among many others................

A typical service is based around the following schedule:


  1. Discuss with end users any problems that have been experienced since last service visit.
  2. Check out set up of microscope before servicing and advise end users of poorly set up or problem instruments.
  3. Strip microscope down to component parts and visually inspect all mechanical components and electrical connections, repair as required.
  4. Clean and re-grease all moving parts and slides as required. (usually components such as coarse and fine focus controls, slides and pinions, stage controls, diopter adjustments etc are cleaned and greased on a rotational basis).
  5. Clean all lenses and other optical surfaces (internal and external) as required.
  6. Reassemble microscope and check for problems such as centring of prisms, lamps, condenser, HBO lamps or objectives being off centre.
  7. Setup microscope for optimum use and ensure that end user is satisfied with instrument. Advise on best practice if required.
  8. A service sticker with service date and service due date to be attached to each microscope.
  9. A service report to be prepared at the end of service visit, listing model, make of instrument and serial number. and detailing any problems to be addressed.
  10. Any additional work required to be agreed on basis of service report recommendations.
