About Omano Scientific
When we launched Microscope.com 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. 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.
Omano is our way to make good science more accessible
In your lab
In your classroom
In your clinic
In your production facility
In your quality control program
If you think a new tool can improve your workflow and remove a few tedious steps from your daily routine, making everybody at work happier and more efficient, give it a try. If it doesn’t have the effect you hoped it would on your workplace, send it back.
If you think your students are distracted in class because the view out the small lab window is more engaging than the antique microscopes they’re learning to use, upgrading your department’s teaching tools isn’t a budget-killer.
If you’re worried your competitors are offering more, and better, services than you but you’re trying to be a responsible business owner and limit your capital expenses, you can catch up. You’ll pay less and get more features, and catapult your business ahead.
Omano is our way to free you to do things your way, without the oppressive limitations expensive hardware puts on your desire to explore and grow.
We are all starved for exploration. And when the wide-world seems like there are no more corners to discover, all we really have to do is look down.
We hope Omano makes your world magic again, and helps you explore the mysteries that can make your job, and life, richer.
