Science House, a non-profit agency that works out of New York City, brought our MiScope digital microscopes to students in the Amazon Rainforest so they could document the changes in their environment. You can read more about their partnership with Brazil at their blog and see images while they were working with students on the MiScope.

Customer Testimonials

"Thank you very much for your assistance and instructions. I love the equipment and have found it indispensable since purchasing my first MiScope years ago."


"Thanks very much for your assistance. I wasn't worried about issues with the scope, I knew it would be taken care of. It's always a pleasure working with you and it's comforting to know that there are still companies who provide excellent service and stand behind their products."


"All is well, the MiScope arrived and I've tested it out. Thanks so much for coming to my rescue."


"Both our customers and employees love this."


"I purchased a MiScope from your company about 2 years ago. It has been a useful tool in my course work and I enjoy the computer access. When I tried to reinstall on my new computer, I received help from Dave Zweig. He had great patience in assisting me through the installation. This is rare anymore and so I had to comment. Wow, service two years after the sale, and patient as well as helpful. I'd purchase here again due to my customer satisfaction."
