Pre-Owned Instruments Certified by ZEISS and available through Nautilus Surgical

Why Consider a Certified Pre-Owned Instrument?

If your budget is limited or if you do not want to purchase a new microscope, certified pre-owned instruments are definitely an option we can help you evaluate and consider.  These microscopes are re-worked, certified to ZEISS standards and covered by legal warranty. The result: you receive guaranteed performance at an attractive price.

Your Nautilus advisor will work closely with you to define your needs and help identify available instruments that will fit your situation.

The Highest Quality and Peace of Mind

It’s important to know that not every used instrument qualifies for the ZEISS Certified Pre-Owned Instrument Program; only those that are well cared for and of a recent generation.

Those that make the grade are reconditioned by factory trained engineers to meet the same factory standards as when the instrument was originally purchased. While there are dozens of “used equipment resellers” out there; only ZEISS can guarantee you’re getting ZEISS Quality, Performance and Reliability, backed by their world-wide Service and Customer Care Team and our expertise.  That is why we proudly partner in the program with ZEISS.

With a ZEISS Certified Pre-Owned Instrument, you get:


  • Thorough inspection upon arrival at ZEISS
  • Thorough testing of components and subsystems performed by their factory trained engineers
  • Only factory authorized parts are used to rework ZEISS instruments
  • Cleaning, cosmetic repairs, paint, and detailing as required
  • Complete systems check to factory performance standards
  • All system shipments occur with factory provided crates to safeguard your investment


  • Professional installation and verification by ZEISS service engineers included
  • Pre-delivery site audit of your facility to ensure optimum performance after installation
  • Software updated to the most current version, if possible, to ensure the maximum possible functionality
  • In many cases, system upgrades and accessories can be bundled into your tool purchase, to provide capabilities typically only available on our most current generation instruments


  • ZEISS backed 1 Year Warranty
  • All Pre-Owned Instruments are given the same priority service as a new instrument
  • Support provided by your local ZEISS Field Service Team with professional on-site repairs as well as all spare parts required to support your instrument
  • Applications and Training Support can also be bundled into your purchase

Take the risk out of a pre-owned microscope purchase!  With a Certified Pre-Owned Instrument and guidance from your Nautilus advisor, you get the Quality, Performance and Reliability that you’ve come to expect from ZEISS.
