Microscope Servicing Tool Kit
There are some essential tools needed to service and perform PMs on clinical microscopes. Most essential is a 10x WF ocular with centering reticle, a spanner wrench, parfocaling shims, and special lubricants.
You will need to have a set of these tools at each hospital location to complete PM servicing.
As a service to our clients we assemble a Tool Kit with these and other items only slightly above our cost. You only need one kit per location - not one kit per tech!
The Standard Tool Kit (TK-2022) includes:
10x W.F. Ocular w/ installed Alignment Reticle to check for Centration Errors
Adjustable Spanner Wrench for removing ocular lens lock rings
Greases - safe for all metals
23-30 mm Ocular Adapter Bushing
Parfocaling Shims - various thicknesses
Assorted Hand Tools
Black Enamel Oil-based Paint for objective repair
Resolution Target for Surgical Stereomicroscopes
Several Replacement Bulbs
Safety Glasses for UV Bulb Alignment
Hand Air Bulb with Brush
Canvas Carrying Case
NIST Certified and Traceable Stage Micrometers
are only included in the TK-2022-SM Kits >>>>>

READ: Recent Drama related to
calibrating Ocular Micrometers
The laboratory staff is responsible to calibrate any ocular micrometers.
Recent scrutiny by the College of American Pathology*(TM) has caused many laboratories to request that the biomed department complete this calibration.
To perform this procedure you will need an NIST* Certified Stage Micrometer.
(*National Institute of Standardization of Technology)
All service and calibration documentation given to the laboratory staff
should indicate the status of the stage micrometer used to calibrate the
laboratory's ocular micrometer ... as to whether it is an NIST Certified
and Traceable Slide Micrometer, or if a NON-NIST Certified
and Traceable Slide Micrometer was used in the calibration.
Microscopy USA L.L.C. very strongly recommends that you or the laboratory purchase and use an NIST Certified and Traceable Slide Micrometer
to calibrate ocular micrometers.
