    Southern Science offers exemplary customer service! I had a question about connecting the ProScope microscope to my computer and they took the time to walk me through everything step by step, making me feel very comfortable!

    The ProScope proved invaluable in my HS Forensics class. The students were amazed at how the tiniest details could make or break a case wide open. I was amazed at how engaged and excited the students were because of this tool. I highly recommend using digital microscopes in the classroom!
