Ideal for advanced high school, biology, college, veterinarian, medical, or technical applications, the Swift Optical M3702C-3 Cordless Monocular Microscope is as practical and versatile as it is thoughtfully designed.

It is outfitted with a single 10x wide field eyepiece and a triple-position nosepiece with 4x, 10x, and 40x objectives that produce magnifications from a low 40x up to a high of 400x. The objectives are parfocal and parcentered, so that little or no focus adjustment will be required when changing magnifications, and the center of the view will remain consistent when switching objectives. The objective turret is also reverse mounted, so the unselected objectives point backward to provide better access to the stage and make changing slides easier. For added comfort and convenience, the eyepiece is set at a 45° angle to make it easy to view through whether you are sitting or standing, and the head can rotate a full 360° to make sharing fast.

The large 5.75x4.75" specimen stage features built-in slide clips, with a two-speed coarse and fine focusing mechanism. The 1.25 Abbe condenser has an iris diaphragm that allows you to precisely control the amount of light coming though the stage for improved specimen contrast. A single lower LED illuminator also has a rheostat dimmer, giving you complete control of the intensity. This model comes with three rechargeable batteries for field use and they charge in the microscope to eliminate the need to carry charging cradles. A single charge will power the LED illuminator for up to 40 hours.

Optical Performance

  • Wide magnification range of 40x, 100x, 400x is ideal for a wide variety of research, scholastic, industrial, and hobbyist applications
  • 10x wide field eyepiece
  • DIN standard 4x (0.10 N.A.), 10x (0.25 N.A.), and 40xR (0.65 N.A.) objectives
  • Semi-plan (semi-planar) objectives present a flat field of view across about 80% of the center portion, so the only noticeable curvature (spherical aberration) will be around the edges of the view
  • Parfocal objectives will require little or no refocusing when changing magnifications
  • Parcentered objectives ensure the center of the view remains consistent when switching between objectives
  • Each objective is color coded for fast identification of the selected magnification
  • Triple objective turret; ball-bearing mounted for smooth, precise positioning of objectives
  • Reverse-position nosepiece design helps to facilitate ease in changing slides

Use and Handling

  • Head set at a 45° angle to place user's head in a comfortable viewing position
  • Head rotates a full 360° to make it easier to share with a group or class; thumb screw locks head in position
  • Camera port integrated into head for attachment of optional Moticam camera
  • Runs on set of three included AA rechargeable NiMH batteries
  • Batteries charge in the microscope for convenience
  • Charges in 8 hours, with up to 40 hours of use
  • Curved handle encourages proper handling

Stage and Illumination

  • Large 5.75x4.75" stage
  • Coaxial coarse and fine focusing controls—coarse has tension adjustment, fine is graduated
  • Ball-bearing mounted mechanical specimen holder with coaxial low-profile controls
  • Built-in 1.25 Abbe condenser with iris diaphragm for precise control of light throughput to improve specimen contrast
  • Lower LED illumination with variable brightness
