Microscope Storage and Grade Sheet

Proper preparation of the microscope for storage reduces chances of damage to the instrument, and ensures that it will be ready for the next use without unwanted surprises. Students should know and follow these steps to proper storage. There will be unannounced occasional graded inspections of microscopes following their use.

Note the grade sheet, which will be used for that purpose, at the bottom of the page.
