Use and Handling

  • Eyepieces are set at a 45° angle to place user's head in a comfortable viewing position
  • Head can rotate a full 360° to make sharing in a lab or around a table easier and more efficient
  • Color-coded objectives provide fast identification of the selected magnification

Optical Performance

  • 10x wide field eyepiece maximizes light throughput for bright and clear views
  • Three magnification choices provide a wide range for a variety of applications: 40x, 100x, 400x
  • 4x, 10x, & 40x achromatic objectives
  • Achromatic objectives correct spherical and chromatic aberration, so the color fidelity of the specimen will be accurate and the field of view will appear flat with the only perceptible curvature at the edges

Stage and Illumination

  • Single speed coarse and fine rack-and-pinion focusing mechanism, 0.31" (8mm) of travel per rotation
  • Dual LED illumination system provides lower (transmitted) illumination and upper (incidental) illumination, making it ideal for solid, semi-transparent, opaque, and transparent specimens
  • Each illuminator has its own rheostat dimmer dial
  • Square 3.5 x 3.5" stage with slide/specimen holders
  • Rotating disc diaphragm has six aperture sizes to easily control the amount of light transmitted up to the specimen
  • Set of 10 prepared slides lets users start learning microscopy right out of the box

Power

  • Runs on three (3) included AA batteries for use in the field
  • The use of LED illumination, rather than traditional halogen or incandescent, extends the battery life for more runtime
  • Included 100-240 VAC power plug
  • A, C, G, and I plug adapters for use in the US, Japan, Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, China, Argentina
