About Microscope World

Microscope Sales, Support, and Superior Customer Service


Microscope World prides itself in offering superior customer service. Choosing a microscope can be a daunting task, especially when you are not sure exactly what you need. Sometimes just trying to figure out how much magnification you need can be tricky. At Microscope World we are here to help you and we hope you will find it easy to both learn about microscopes and make educated decisions based on your needs. If you have any questions about microscopes, or are not sure exactly which microscope you need, please contact us. 

Our company was founded over twenty years ago as an educational science video production company. While producing educational videos, our founder realized that it was often difficult to find quality optical instruments and he became a dealer of several different brands of microscopes. 

Microscope World offers a complete line of microscopes for everything from including Swift, National Optical, and Richter Optica educational microscopes, to more advanced Motic laboratory microscopes and high quality Meiji Techno or Zeiss professional microscope instruments. If you do not see the specific item you are looking for, please call us and we will be happy help you. We pride ourselves in employing highly knowledgeable professionals available to assist you with your microscopy needs. 

California Green BusinessMicroscope World is a green certified business by the California Green Business Network. In order to become certified Microscope World had to meet standards for energy reduction, pollution prevention, solid waste recycling, switch to cleaner products to ensure wastewater is not contaminated, and reduce clean water use.

Some of the changes Microscope World made included switching to 100% recycled paper products in the office, switching to non-toxic cleaning products that meet EWG's A standard, encouraging alternative commuting methods such as commute by bike, and removing single use plastics from the office.

Microscope World recycles. At our corporate headquarters, Microscope World does its part to keep the planet happy and healthy. Peanuts used for packing microscopes are biodegradable and we have started using shredded paper for packing when feasible. Boxes are recycled and reused when possible. At our office we have low-flow water spouts on all faucets to save water, as well as solar on our roof.



Microscope World has sold many microscopes to individuals, schools and industries over the years (see our customer list). A highly regarded science and technology corporation, Microscope World offers secure online ordering more educational support than any other company on the web.
