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
   Tri-Flow Lubricant
   23-30 mm Ocular Adapter Bushing
   Parfocaling Shims - various thicknesses
   Assorted Hand Tools
   Black Enamel Oil-based Paint for objective repair
   Pocket Micrometer
   Allen Wrenches
   Jeweler's Screwdrivers
   Immersion Oil
   Resolution Target for Surgical Stereomicroscopes
   Prepared Slides
   Several Replacement Bulbs
   Safety Glasses for UV Bulb Alignment
   Cleaning Rag
   Hand Air Bulb with Brush
   Canvas Carrying Case

          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.
