This month, we'll be shining the spotlight on Meiji Techno, a trusted manufacturer of optical microscopes and accessories.

Meiji Techno Co., Ltd. is the third-largest manufacturer of optical microscopes in Japan. Founded in 1964, Meiji Techno Co., Ltd. began selling microscopes directly to the public in 1975 under the name Meiji Techno.

Originally a manufacturer of educational microscopes, Meiji Techno has expanded its focus to include the industrial, laboratory, higher education and research markets worldwide.

Let’s find out more about Meiji Techno microscopes and some of the high-quality products and accessories they offer.

High Quality at a Lower Price: What Makes Meiji Unique

Meiji Techno stands out from the crowd because of its ability to offer top-notch microscopes at a lower price point than other manufacturers. Its microscopes are sold across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas by a network of authorized dealers including New York Microscope Company.

Since its products are manufactured in Japan rather than China, Meiji is able to ensure that its standards are consistently met, and that each Meiji microscope they produce is of the highest possible quality.

Meiji also takes its social responsibility seriously, and is committed to protecting the environment by procuring only eco-friendly parts and materials, introducing LED options for nearly all of their microscope models and purchasing from suppliers who are environmentally responsible.

Additionally, Meiji is one of the only manufacturers to offer a limited lifetime warranty, and is also ISO 9001 certified, meaning that the International Organization for Standardization has recognized them for consistently providing products that meet both customer and regulatory requirements, and aim to enhance customer satisfaction.

For these reasons, Meiji can compete with the “big four” microscope manufacturers – Leica, Olympus, Nikon and Zeiss – in terms of quality at a lower price.

Meiji is our brand of the month because it's just as committed to quality as it is to affordability. Plus, it offers a well-rounded line of microscopes that cater to multiple industries, such as:

  • Industrial manufacturing
  • Quality control inspections
  • Research
  • Education
