What is Prescott’s mission?

In today’s world, surgeons perform intricate procedures with unparalleled precision, thanks to the power of cutting-edge operating microscopes harnessing the latest in medical technology and imaging. These new microscopes, however, are increasingly complex and costly.

At Prescott’s, we are committed to providing our customers with affordable reconditioned surgical microscopes and accessories that function as if they were fresh off the assembly line from the OEM. We understand the importance of reliable equipment in the hands of skilled surgeons and believe that by breathing new life into these microscopes, we can make a tangible impact on the world of healthcare.

Our dedication to quality goes beyond simply refurbishing equipment; we strive to ensure that all Prescott’s products meet the highest standard of safety and reliability. This commitment is why Prescott’s backs all parts and equipment with a full 2-year warranty and adheres to a quality management system as a certified ISO 13485:2016 manufacturer and provider of refurbished surgical microscopes and parts.

Why buy a refurbished microscope?

Manufacturing medical equipment is an energy-intensive process, producing a considerable amount of waste and hazardous by-products. By refurbishing pre-owned medical equipment, we can reuse up to 90% of the original material. This means the remaining unused materials can be sent to local scrap yards, recycled, and reintroduced into the market as raw materials. So, by choosing a refurbished microscope, you’re saving money and doing your part in reducing toxic emissions and lowering your facility’s carbon footprint.

Some surgical microscopes may be considered obsolete by the original equipment manufacturer, but they shouldn’t be destined for the scrap heap! Through our meticulous refurbishing process, we can bring these microscopes back to life, restoring them to OEM specifications. These revitalized microscopes can be placed in various facilities, such as hospitals, surgery centers, medical centers, grant-funded research labs, medical mission projects, clinics, pre/post-exam offices, and outpatient settings.

Facilities that embrace the use of refurbished surgical microscopes know they’re not only champions of environmental sustainability but also budget superheroes. Refurbished surgical microscopes save 30-50% compared to purchasing new equipment. It’s no wonder that more facilities are making the switch.

How does Prescott’s get refurbished microscopes?

Zeiss OPMI 1FC S21 ENT Microscope OpticsPrescott’s acquires previously-owned microscopes from hospitals and clinics that have upgraded or changed their microscope capabilities and wish to dispose of select units. These units are then transported to our state-of-the-art facility, where they undergo disassembly into their basic components. These components, additional parts, and accessories are used to refurbish the operating microscope.

At Prescott’s, we have developed a refurbishing process that prioritizes post-sales service. As we serve a wide range of locations, we have found component exchange to be the most effective way of implementing our guarantee. We have designed our motor control units, power modules, fiber-optic illumination, light sources, and foot switches, enabling us to collaborate with our clients to maintain their surgical microscopes’ functionality.

Thinking about retiring your unused microscope or ready to upgrade? Contact Prescott’s to sell your old microscope and put that towards your next purchase!

What should I know before buying a refurbished microscope?

When considering the purchase of a previously-owned microscope, it’s essential to know whether the equipment has undergone a full refurbishment as opposed to a PM and Electric Safety Check. It is advisable to ascertain that the microscope originates from an ISO-certified organization capable of issuing a warranty and ongoing support after your purchase. More importantly, understand if there will be a local technician to install the microscope, educate staff on usage, provide support through cases, provide on-going annual maintenance, and respond to corrective repair needs.

Why buy from Prescott’s?

Prescott’s has been refurbishing surgical microscopes for almost 40 years, long before it became fashionable to adopt environmentally-friendly practices.
