The T-19018C Comprehensive 2 Compound Microscope from Ken-a-Vision is a three-objective compound monocular featuring an inclined viewing head, 130x120mm coated mechanical stage, and white LED substage illumination. This Comprehensive 2 series microscope is designed for elementary and middle school students—durable aluminum construction and protective mechanisms like stage stop, rack stop, and spring-loaded 40xS objective tip help to ensure years of service in the classroom. Another classroom-friendly feature is the 360° rotating monocular eyepiece that allows the view to be shared among many students without moving the microscope.

Achromatic DIN-standard objectives minimize chromatic aberration and enhance contrast, providing color faithful and detail-rich images—even when viewing unstained specimens. These lead-free objectives are also coated with a moisture-resistant coating that prevents mildewing and fogging. This Comprehensive 2 scope has a Vernier-scaled mechanical stage with coaxial fine and coarse specimen controls under the stage; its 1.25NA condenser with iris complement the optical system and stage by allowing the observer to make precise adjustments to both the specimen placement and specimen illumination.

Comprehensive 2 microscopes have low-position coaxial focus controls integrated into both sides of the base, enabling right or left-handed stage adjustment. The focus system also includes ergonomic rubberized grips and coarse-focus torque adjustment that is capable of raising the stage height from minimum to maximum in only one rotation.

The T-19018C also has a built-in energy-efficient rheostat-controlled LED illuminator that operates at a cool temperature that prolongs the life of the light source and specimens. Ken-a-Vision engineered this compound microscope to be easy to use yet feature-rich enough to suit the needs of teachers within a wide range of grade levels. The Comprehensive 2 series microscope was built for reliable novice-proof performance and is backed by the manufacturer's ten-year warranty.
