At the risk of anthropomorphizing your science department’s inventory of magnification instruments, we’d like to suggest they’re exhausted from a hard year’s work and could benefit from a real summer vacation in the hands of the professionals here at Absolute Clarity & Calibration.
During the school year, there’s not always a good time or opportunity for proper preventative maintenance, and that can eventually lead to failures in your expensive equipment. For example, the internal lubricants can evaporate and begin the internal contamination process, and once a sticky coating of contamination has worked its way into your instrument, your images may begin to appear dull or hazy. Before long, the zoom knob will become harder to turn, or you may notice the optics chattering – all of which could have been prevented with a proper maintenance schedule.
Other common microscope problems include optical misalignment or parfocality issues. Absolute Clarity & Calibration’s s knowledgeable staff has extensive experience in microscope repair and refurbishments including microscope realignment and decontaminations. We know microscopes inside and out, down to the component level, which means that you can trust we can discover your problem and get your microscope working properly again.
Our complete range of mechanical repair services includes rack and pinions and other focus assemblies; binoculars (correcting problems with lenses being too loose or too tight); stages and motion control devices; and zoom and magnification controls. We can also address lighting, digital readout problems, linear and rotary encoders, video monitor and CCD equipment trouble. We work on stereo zooms, turrets and binocular heads, and even perform retrofits and much more.
Once all your instruments are restored to pristine condition, we can help you determine the best preventive maintenance schedule for your organization, because an ounce of prevention will really go a very long way. Our preventive maintenance service team offers on-site field service for solutions to your problems on your terms and at your facility. They’ll first identify your optical equipment service needs and provide preventive maintenance service, a thorough cleaning and diagnosis of any problems on a regular basis, and offer repair solutions as may be necessary.
Education is key with sensitive instruments, and we can provide mini seminars to your staff so they are informed and capable of maintaining your instruments and diagnosing potential problems themselves. We’re always available for support regarding training issues, support documentation and solutions to applications and upgrade problems throughout the year. We’ve even put together a list of common microscope problems that can help you troubleshoot some frequently seen issues on your own.
At Absolute Clarity & Calibration, we can help with your repairs, maintenance and even new equipment needs. To learn more, reach out to us today by calling 860-583-0502.
