Microscope – the name itself defines an instrument for observing objects too small to be detected by the naked eye. The technology is based on the controlled transmission of light and is fundamentally unchanged since the days of Zeiss and Abbe. However, a modern microscope must perform to an unprecedented level of ‘micro precision’ to produce optimum results. Its performance will be significantly reduced for a number of reasons, including:

  • Faulty illumination system;
  • Mechanical failure of coarse or fine focus mechanism;
  • Failure of mechanical stage movement;
  • Defective or soiled objective lenses or oculars;
  • Incorrect or mismatched ocular lenses;
  • Damaged or incorrectly adjusted condensers;
  • Misaligned head prisms;
  • Defective electrical/electronic system;
  • Depleted lubrication in the moving parts;
  • Physically broken mechanical parts, e.g., gears, racks, pinions, rings, etc.;
  • Missing/damaged bearings.

Therefore a microscope requires periodic maintenance, cleaning, lubrication, alignment and calibration to prevent damage and ensure proper functioning. It may also require repair or replacement of parts.
