Regular maintenance reduces replacements
Due to our regular in-house maintenance, our microscopes can last up to 25 years
We maintain an inventory of used parts
We keep parts from microscopes that have been taken out of the rental pool and use them to repair older scopes. This way, we can keep items in use for a longer period of time.
Resale and Reuse
At the end of their useful life, the majority of microscopes and accessories are transferred to Aggie Surplus.
Keeping it local
Since we are based locally, we minimize fossil fuel and reduce the campus' carbon footprint.
