Here are 3D parts we have designed for microscopes. Most have been designed in either Solidworks or Autocad Inventor (which can be obtained free for academic use).

96-well format sample holders

These are stage inserts with the same footprint as a standard 96-well plate, so they will sit in any 96-well plate holder.
