Microscope Parts and Accessories

The microscope has many medicine and science applications and even if you are dabbling with it just as an amateur enthusiast, you will still need to acquire some microscope parts and accessories. Parts and whole microscopes have become a lot more affordable since the price of optics dropped and the market now offers a range of different models and compatible parts. The increased number of microscopes available has increased and diversified the volume of accessories as well, providing a lot of options to choose from.

Traditional or Digital

When selecting medicine and science equipment and supplies one of the first choices is between traditional and digital. Traditional microscopes have fewer parts, but almost all of them can be individually removed and replaced. Digital microscopes are integrated in a device that resembles a digital camera and changes to it are harder to perform. Still, both traditional and digital microscopes have a lot non-moving or mechanical parts for which you can find replacements or upgrades.


When choosing a part, make sure to use parts of the same manufacturer. Microscope parts are not standardised, so there's a very little chance of cross-brand compatibility. If you are simply looking for a replacement, each part is stamped with a model number which will help you search for the exact one you need.


Slides and storage cases the most commonly used microscope accessories. If you use the microscope on daily basis, you can work through a lot of slides very fast. Fortunately, slides are sold in bulk and you can save a lot by purchasing a large pack. Slice cases range in capacity from individual slide cases to a case containing dozens. You can find plastic, wooden and metal cases, often combined with a glass screen on top to improve visibility. Immersion oils and gloves are also common accessories and they can be found in large quantities as they have universal application.
