Microscope Services actively promotes environmental sustainability.
Regular maintenance reduces replacements
- Due to our regular in-house maintenance, our microscopes can last up to 25 years or longer.
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 allows us to 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 AggieSurplus.
Keeping it local
- Since we are located on the Davis campus, we minimize the use of fossil fuels and reduce the campus' carbon footprint.
