This monocular microscope has three objectives, providing 150x, 450x, and 900x magnification adequate for viewing a variety of specimen types. This beginner microscope features several user-friendly functions that enable convenient viewing. Instead of sliding the specimen around by hand, this microscope's mechanical stage permits enhanced specimen control on both X and Y axes.
