You've bought a microscope—now what? Make the most of your investment with the right microscope accessories.

When most people think of microscope accessories, they think of only one thing: prepared slides. And it's easy to see why! Without microscope slides, you won't get much use out of your 'scope. But there are other complementary microscope products to consider, as well.

A mechanical stage makes a good microscope even better. It allows easier and more precise slide positioning for better viewing. Books with experiments, illustrations, and how-tos will guide you through using your microscope. That's especially useful for beginners or students working alone.

Replacement bulbs, immersion oil, and cleaning supplies are microscope accessories that help you maintain your microscope well. And a carrying case helps protect it during travel and storage.

We also sell individual microscope slides and prepared slide sets. And hands-on kits like the Slidemaking Kit or Microscopic Life Kit help you use your microscope to the fullest right away.
