C & A Scientific Co., Inc. has been manufacturing and distributing professional research and student microscopes for 20+ years. We frequently receive calls from local parents looking for a "real" microscope as a gift for their child, usually an adolescent or teen. These consumers are looking for a true scientific instrument, not a plastic toy, and they are unable to find it in traditional stores. My First Lab Microscope (Model MFL-02) was designed to fill this gap in the retail market. The My First Lab Microscope uses the same quality glass that we sell in our professional medical microscopes. It's also built with a sturdy, all metal construction. This makes it look and feel like a real microscope, not a cheap toy.
With headquarters in Manassas, Virginia and another office in Shanghai, China, C & A Scientific provides superior Medical/Educational products to the wholesale industry, serving both the domestic and international sectors.
C & A Scientific brings a fresh and innovative approach to buying high quality but low cost product by acting as liaison between the wholesaler and the manufacturer. We buy direct from overseas and pass those savings on to our wholesalers.
