Affordable Microscopes for Everyday Use

About is a leading online retailer of Omano, Meiji Techno, Motic and Dino-Lite microscopes and microscope accessories. Our success has been based on the fact that most customers do not need an expensive, high-end, branded microscope for their particular application. They need a “work horse,” a well-built, reliable microscope with high quality optical components that enables them to get the job done. Moreover, they need it to be affordable for everyday use and applications.

Omano microscopes were created to fulfill this demand with a consistent level of quality.  And even more important, while good customer service is hard to define – we all know it when we receive it!  While we leave that judgment up to our customers, we are proud to have won the TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award for Best Online Microscope Retailer for the past six consecutive years including 2014.

Our company blog is designed to bring you a variety of microscopy, company and product news as well as general interest and educational topics of relevance to our customers. Blogs are written by a variety of staff members and all are encouraged to participate with their thoughts.
