Product Highlights
  • 20-40x Zoom Magnification
  • LED Illumination

The Carson MicroBrite Portable Microscope is an extremely light, portable 20-40x magnification microscope.  Its built-in LED light provides bright, clean-colored illumination for viewing.  It is so small and light that it fits easily in your pocket to bring with you anywhere.  Images are rendered inverted, because it does not have any prisms in the optical path (this is common to high-magnification devices).  You can place it directly upon the surface of something to observe, or use the base stand for specimens upon slide mounts.

            I bought this for my 4.5 year old on the recommendation of the B&H staff. It works great for kids. The magnification is strong, easy to see and bright (has an LED light you push to see). You may need to help on occasion with focusing but I see my son walking around examining everything on his own. Great learning toy and great price.

              I gave the Micro Brite 5 stars because IT does everything I expected! the LED light (attached) is not very powerful, worked better for me outdoors during daytime. SHIPPED to my house. Very happy with my purchase.

                    I purchased this portable microscope to use in my home machine shop. I wanted to be able to see the cutting edges of hand sharpened lathe tool bits. This unit is perfect for seeing sharpening work close-up.

                    It works so well that I use it for other tasks such as adjusting the location of center-punch marks on parts that I am making.

                    This thing is really handy! You can't beat the price.

                    Comments about Carson MicroBrite Portable Microscope:

                    Great product . I use it for looking at insects and studying parts of flowers more closely , so mostly in a natural history environment . Very portable and seems to be very robust . I cant think off hand about anything negative , except maybe that it is requires very precise placement of the specimen , and the specimen has to be moved in the opposite direction to where you actually want it , which can be confusing , but one you get to know the product , it is fine .
