    About Apex Microscopes

    Apex Microscopes is an established company that specialises solely in Internet Trading, We offer a small but carefully selected range of microscopes, ideally suited for amateur and home use, as well a for the junior scientist and commercial use. In addition we have a range of accessories designed to expand the application of our microscopes, such as phase contrast sets, CCTV and photography adapters, and aluminium carrying cases. For the high power compound microscopes we have sets of prepared slides and slide preparation kits to suit the beginner as well as the experienced microscopist.


    At Apex we like to think that we understand microscopes and their applications, and are pleased to offer sales advice and technical support (this comes free as part of your contract when you purchase any item from Apex). Purchasing a microscope for the first time can be quite a challenge for those not familiar with them and we have tried to make it as straight forward as possible.

    At Apex we believe we offer microscopes of excellent quality at very good prices. The lenses from all of our microscopes are made from quality optical glass, and the moving parts are metal not plastic. You can buy with confidence as we pledge to refund any customer who is not entirely satisfied immediately and without question. If you have any questions or queries regarding any of our products please contact us.
