Every brilliant experiment, like every great work of art, starts with an act of imagination.

- Jonah Lehrer started as a biology teacher’s experiment in 1998. A brilliant one? We like to think so. But brilliance isn’t what really matters. For something remarkable to flare into existence there has to be a spark. An ember or a flash of lightning that ignites the imagination and illuminates the hidden possibilities.

We set out in this experiment to be the lightning

More than 400 universities spanning every corner of the U.S. trust to deliver value to their programs, so students can learn and scientists can push the boundaries of their research.

8 of the top 10 medical device manufacturers in the U.S. do their most innovative work, develop their most cutting-edge designs, and scrutinize every quality control standard with microscopes from us. 

Businesses exploring the limits of technology and human understanding like Tesla, Apple, Google, Facebook, and organizations on the bleeding edge, like NASA and the NIH, use our microscopes every single day.

Scientists Helping Scientists

We are scientists. We love slides and samples and cells. We love our work and we love talking to other scientists. Our willingness to chat with customers at length about their applications could be a sales gimmick, but we’re really just interested in getting to know what you do so we can find you the right microscope and learn a little for ourselves.

So just call - we are always available for a phone call or live chat during working hours.

And because we’re scientists too, we know the other things that matter to you and your workplace, like:

Everything we manufacture comes with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

If it doesn’t work the way you want, if it has more features than you need, if you don’t like the color or the way it looks on your benchtop, send it back. We’ll take it, no questions asked.

We’ll help you find a new one or refund you completely.

If you have a problem with anything we manufacture next week, next year, or 30 years from now, we’ll fix it. 

We decided decades ago to offer a lifetime limited warranty on all our microscopes for sale because we know the quality built into our instruments. 

The microscopes for sale from Omano and our other brands are remarkably well built. We’re confident in them, and we don’t think you’ll ever have to test your warranty.

Volume pricing discounts are available on large orders of microscopes and accessories.

We want to see science flourish, and that means getting the right tools in the hands of lots of scientists.

All you have to do is request a quote or register for a business account and let us know how many units you need.

About Omano Scientific 

When we launched 25 years ago, there was a plan. And the heart of that plan was simple:

Make science more accessible

As kids, we all marvel at new discoveries. But bit by bit, the simple magic gets boring and the world loses its mystery. 

Not because you know it all. But because the mysteries that remain are deeper and harder to see. They’re smaller, further away, more complex. 

They’re less accessible because they require help. Tools that allow you to engage with things still mysterious. An eyepiece. A light source. But those tools cost money. A lot of it.

And to us that doesn’t seem fair.

That’s why we decided to build a brand of microscopes ourselves. 

We named these Omano. 

Omano microscopes are built to the same quality standards as the instrument you’re familiar with, but there’s no premium price attached to the name.
