Microscope Servicing Tool Kit

There are some essential tools needed to service and perform PMs on clinical microscopes. Most essential is a 10x ocular w/ centering reticle, slide micrometer, a spanner wrench, parfocal 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!

   calibrating Ocular Micrometers

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 it is a NON-NIST Certified and Traceable Slide Micrometer.

Microscopy USA USA L.L.C. strongly recommends that you purchase and use a NIST Certified and Traceable Slide Micrometer.
