The 132-MS Compound Microscope from National Optical is a versatile user-friendly compound microscope designed to facilitate teaching at the high school level using the standard format used in schools through grade twelve. The student-proof design decreases the likelihood of lost parts or mishandling.

This model of the 132-MS is configured with both inclined and vertical 10x eyepieces for simultaneous viewing, achromatic 4x/10x/40x objectives mounted on a rotating turret, and low position knobs for precise focusing between coarse and fine focus ranges. The included mechanical stage is a useful graduated specimen holder with top-mounted x/y controls for precise positioning of slides and other objects on the viewing stage.
