Microscope service usually involves complete cleaning of all optical surfaces and dismantling mechanical parts (stage, lamp, focus drives, etc.) for removal (ultrasonic clean) of old lubricants and refitting for proper factory recommended lubrication of these components. It takes a Leitz expert to overhaul a focus block. Centerable objective nosepieces from a polarized light microscope must be fully functional for proper centration of the objective to the stage optical axis. Collimation (nosepiece, stage, condenser) is critical. All Bunton microscopes are checked and adjusted prior to shipment to the customer......has been this way for over 60 years!

Aside from the accumulated dirt and grime from years of use, the most frequent trouble spot on an optical microscope is the focus drive. Very few service people know how to do these focus block overhauls much less use the correct lubricants or reassembly and adjustment procedure. Both of the above firms are experts in this procedure. Another common problem with microscopes involves their light source. Bad sockets, circuit board components in power supplies and hard to find correct bulbs are a real challenge. Beside the focus block, the next problem area is the mechanical stage and nosepiece. All of these require complete disassembly, lubrication and reassembly. See some of our LED illumination options on the MICROSCOPE ACCESSORIES page.
We are experts in updating illumination systems for microscopes. We sell LED retrofits (another R) to replace old incandescent bulbs and power supplies. We put a One Year Warranty on all Bunton RRR microscopes.
