All sales of products that are close-out specials, or special ordered on behalf of customers are final. No returns of such close-out or special ordered products will be accepted and no refunds can be made.

NON-WARRANTY REPAIRS All products returned for repair require a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA). Please call us for a RMA on (877) 409-3556. If the product is not covered by warranty, a minimum fee of $99 will be charged to assess and repair the microscope plus the cost of any parts required and shipping.

Typically, repairs will be executed within three weeks of receiving the product although the exact timing will vary according to the complexity of the repairs, any requirement to order spare parts and the volume of repair work in hand at any given time. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs at standard rates quoted to us by our carrier.
