We want to help you get your students excited about science! Our curated collection of teaching microscopes gives you the tools to make science awesome. How can the microscopes below make every day a little better in your world?
Improved student engagement
Teaching microscopes allow you to work more closely with students, and they appreciate it. You and your students will feel reinvigorated to learn.
Improved student outcomes
You want your students to succeed, and the kind of personal attention they get through a teaching microscope helps you achieve that goal.
Unique learning opportunities
Students don't always get to work closely with their instructors, and the kind of learning opportunities that come from more focused engagement can be excciting.

Sharing facilitates learning, and that’s what teaching microscopes are all about. Sharing access to exploration and discovery and sharing your passion for the sciences with your students.
Teaching microscopes are special because they allow you to engage your students in real time whether they’re learning online with you or in the classroom. You can attach your microscope camera to your laptop or computer monitor and screen share with students anywhere in the world. They see exactly what you see, and share in the magic as you draw back the curtain.
Aside from sharing capabilities, optical quality also distinguishes a good teaching microscope from the rest. That means:
A wide field of view
A bright and even light source
Sharp focus across the viewing field
Teaching microscopes must be easy to use. If your students use their own microscopes, you don’t want to spend your entire lesson adjusting and optimizing each one individually. The easier they are to use, the more time your class gets to spend in adventure.
Our house brand, Omano, exists to make the most of your department’s budget. We build them with the goal of making science accessible and engaging. They’re durable (no plastic here). They’re thoughtfully designed (with features that make sense for your use).
They’re built to the same quality standards as the Zeiss or Leica you’re familiar with, but there’s no premium price attached to the name. But we don’t just tell you they’re good.
We make sure they’re good:
If you just don’t like yours and want to send it back after a few weeks of use, do it. We’ll take it back with no questions asked.
If you have a problem with it 30 years from now, we’ll fix it. We made a decision decades ago that we would offer a lifetime limited warranty because we know we don’t have to worry about quality issues.
Let’s chat about how we can help make science more accessible to your students.
