Microscopy Sessions

These sessions are open to anyone wanting to bring a new dimension of the world into focus with our suite of microscopes, whether you have a project in mind, or just want to experience the wonder and magic of the unseen world for yourself. No experience in microscopy is required as our Lab Technician can show you all you need to know, and ASCUS Lab has a massive collection of slides for you to get lost in if you don’t have any samples of your own that you would like to bring.
  • Independent sessions (no assistance required): £8/7* per hour
  • One-to-one sessions with our Lab Technician : £33/30* per hour

A brief microscopy health and safety induction needs to be completed on your first visit to ASCUS Lab charged at £5/4.50*

*concessions: full-time students; unemployed persons, senior citizens, residents of Summerhall, and disabled persons. If you have booked as a concession you must provide proof of status on arrival.

There is something truly captivating about seeing everyday things up close and it really changes ones perspective on how intricate and beautiful the world around us is. To access these sessions, please complete the Microscopy Enquiry Form below, and we will be in touch.
