Microscope Repair Schedule

Microscope Repair Schedule


Since 1940 Texas Nautical Repair, Inc. has provided service and sales of optical, scientific and navigational instruments. Our factory trained technicians service all models of microscopes including Olympus, Leica, Swift, American Optical, Nikon, Zeiss, Wild, Bausch & Lomb, Reichert, Spencer, Accu-Scope, Labomed and many more. We service microscopes on site as well as here at our repair facility located at 1925A Richmond Avenue in Houston.


Our usual labor rate is:

$75 per hour

Free loaner microscopes are available on request.

We recommend regular preventative maintenance of your microscope to ensure optimal perfomance. This can be done every 6-12 months depending on the amount of use your microscope receives.



Standard rates for preventative maintenance are as follows:

PM on monocular compound student microscopes start at


PM on binocular compound laboratory microscopes start at


PM on binocular compound research microscopes start at



Typical preventative maintenance includes lubricating and adjusting the focus and mechanical stage as well as cleaning all external lenses . We also inspect and clean the prism head, clean and adjust the condenser as well as the lamp assembly. Additional charges apply for replacement parts or to disassemble and overhaul the objective.


We also provide full service on stereo dissecting microscopes. Most repairs can be accomplished in one week or less. But for those who require minimal down time for their instrument or have a scope that is too large to move, one of our technicians can provide an on site service call at reasonable rates. Please call us at 713-529-3551 and we will schedule a time that is convenient for you - usually within 48 hours.


We service many of the microscopes in the Texas Medical Center as well as U.T.M.B. in Galveston.
