Our fees vary depending upon the microscope in need of maintenance. Due to the difficulty in evaluating a microscope without seeing it firsthand, we require you to send your microscope to our facility before we can give you an accurate quote. Our technicians will do a complete evaluation and advise you of the repair costs, but please know that you are under no obligation to repair your equipment.

To do a proper evaluation, microscopes and microscope parts must be disassembled and evaluated by a repair technician. There is a $50 evaluation fee for each monocular microscope and a $75 fee for each binocular microscope. Small, non-optical parts, such as mechanical stages, require a $25 evaluation fee; all optical components, such as objectives, condensers, and binocular bodies, require a $50 evaluation fee. All evaluation fees will be waived & deducted from the repair estimate, should you decide to have your item repaired or replaced.

Microscope Shipping Costs

Return shipping, handling, and insurance are approximately $15.00 for small parts (such as objectives and small components), $25.00 for each monocular microscope, and $45.00 for each binocular or trinocular microscope. Higher shipping charges apply for unusually large microscopes within the mainland forty-eight states.
