MicrAP Enterprises

This is a silly name for a non-existent company, although I do offer several different items for sale. I am a one man operation who does this microscope and diatom stuff for fun and as a hobby. So please be patient with me if I am slow to respond to your inquiries. I used to offer various adapters and micromanipulator but have closed that side of the business. If you are interested, I still have a link to the old page here .

I currently offer the following items for sale. Please contact me by email if you are interested in purchasing any of them.

Zrax High Refractive Index Mounting Media
