Affordable Microscopes for Everyday Use

March 06, 2014

6th Consecutive Year!

Holy Moly! We are thrilled and delighted to have once again been awarded ToptenREVIEWS’ GOLD AWARD for BEST ONLINE MICROSCOPE RETAILER…..for the 6th consecutive year! But this year, we have the added distinction of being awarded the coveted award for EXCELLENCE. Coming on top of a strong 2013, we are a bit feeling a bit giddy…but don’t worry, we are keeping our eye on the ball or more accurately, on the ocular!

It is always hard to explain, but our team of employees are more than dedicated to customer service. It is simply a part of everyone’s nature. A desire to please the customer with good value microscopes and a really great experience. We receive regular emails to this effect, all of which are posted under Customer Testimonials but it is always nice to have a formal endorsement such as in the words of the review:

“Out of all the microscope stores we reviewed, we were most impressed with the customer service and selection offered by this site and it’s our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award winner.

The customer service is absolutely the best and the inventory, support, shipping options, educational discounts and related information available on the site makes it a clear winner among the best-of-the-best online microscope stores.”

At, Customer Service is not just idle talk. It starts with an easy-to-navigate and engaging website, friendly telephone service for both pre and post sales inquiries, really good value microscopes at competitive prices, secure payment systems, easy returns….the list goes on. Suffice to say, however, that on those rare occasions when something is wrong with the product…..that is when we tend to win our lifelong customers!

As always, all the above is meaningless without a fantastic group of people in the office and warehouse and as always, I am extremely grateful for all their hard work on your behalf. It’s a heck of a team!
