Microscopy

SCHOTT has provided optical glass for stereo microscopes since their invention in the late 19th century, and we still set a high standard. Light is important for microscopy and makes hidden details visible. Our broad range of high resolution, low-autofluorescence microscopy solutions, from fiber optic to LED, to create the right solution for every application. Our D263® glass products offer high luminous transmittance and an excellent colorless appearance, making them the ideal choice for microscope slides.

Glass Tubes for Labs

SCHOTT is a global leader in the production of top-quality tubing glass. DURAN® glass is particularly well-suited to laboratories thanks to its high corrosion resistance, high thermal shock resistance and wide dimensional spectrum. Outstanding geometrical accuracy makes it ideal for measuring cylinders and other volumetric apparatus. We can also manufacture a large range of sizes at your request, helping you to identify which product best suits your needs.
