If you can unmount the camera and remove the zoom lens, you can put it onto a 
C mount (some cameras require F mount, so you should check with the supplier. 
 However, I would personally be worried if a student or untrained technician 
would do this.  I know Alpha Innotech sells a microscope adapter kit which 
you can run a less costly Alpha camera independently from the imager camera.  
They also list a SpectraImager on their website.

UVP on their website lists a BioMicro system.
