Lomo microscopes are sadly missed

Postby Rocketcaver on Thu Feb 07, 2013 4:02 pm

I see that the LOMO microscopes are no longer being sold in the US.
This saddens me, as I am a long time Multiscope user and am quite happy with my scope.
I recently recommended a Laboroscop to a colleague thinking that it would be a perfect fit for use in her veterinary clinic.
That was when I discovered that they have followed the Multiscope into extinction.
Are these scopes still being made and sold in Russia, or has the whole LOMO microscope operation been shut down?
I still see some objectives and other accessories available for sale by Optics Planet, but must wonder if these are just remaining old stock or if new units are still being made.
Thank you for your attention.

Thank you for your post. Your sadness is shared by many. It is unknown if the factory that manufacturers LOMO optics will make their products available to consumers. We are unaware of any channels through which you may purchase them. We do have some LOMO parts and accessories available, in particular, the POLAM polarizing microscope. The POLAM has superior optics and is used around the globe. Please let us know if you would like to learn more about the available LOMO parts. You can e mail us at
