Digital photomicroscopy

I'm now using a digital camera (currently a FujiFilm Finepix 2800) for nearly everything I formerly did with 35mm. The sole exception is photomicroscopy; don't do it very often, in fact I haven't needed to do it since I went digital, but so far I have no good way to get a photo from a microscope except by scanning a print.

Needless to say I can't afford a digital with interchangeable lenses, which would probably have a proper microscope adapter available, so I suspect that I may have to think about some sort of add-on adapter going in front of the zoom. This is usually the recipe for crappy results, so if anyone has any better ideas (other than modifying a webcam or something, which would be too low definition to be useful) I'd be grateful for your comments.
