Ideal for beginners, students, and microscopy enthusiasts, the BRESSER Duolux 20-1280x Monocular Microscope is a versatile device that reveals the hidden microscopic world around us.

Optically, you get two eyepieces that provide 5x and 16x magnification with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles each eyepiece's power. A three-position nosepiece holds 4x, 10x, and 40x objectives, and by combining these with the eyepieces and Barlow, you can produce a low 20x power for larger specimens like coins and stamps or dial up the magnification to an astounding 1280x to reveal cellular details. To easily document, save, and share your specimens, BRESSER includes a high-definition USB eyepiece camera that connects to a computer running the included software suite.

An innovative stage design and dual LED light sources allow you to quickly and easily convert it from incidental to transmission and back, so you can view a wide assortment of specimens in quick succession. A combination filter wheel and diaphragm make it easy to set the proper light color and transmission for any specimen you're viewing. An independent dimmer control and joysticks that enable you to finely adjust the light position ensure you are putting the perfect amount of light exactly where you need it.

To get you started, BRESSER includes blank slides, a set of preparation tools including tweezers, and a pipette. If you don't want to prepare your own specimens, there is a set of prepared slides so you can start your microscopy journey immediately. Finally, you are also given a complete shrimp hatchery, so you can observe the full life cycle of shrimp. The base of the microscope has a large drawer that you can use to store all the accessories and keep them safe.
