Designed by a scientist and mother of two preschoolers, GeoSafari Jr. My First Microscope allows kids to see magnified hidden worlds with ease! This fully functional microscope is a real tool with a range of magnification (2.5x–8x) designed with a preschooler in mind. Magnified views can be challenging for little ones to understand, so by starting with the 2.5x view (with the focusing knob turned as far away from your child as it will go), your preschooler can orient herself to the item she’s viewing, and as she turns the focusing knob towards herself, she can gradually pull away to an 8x view. The wide field of view of these lower magnifications is critical to little ones’ understanding. My First Microscope also features two extra-large eyepieces (no need to close one eye!) and a chunky, kid-sized focusing knob. A bright LED with easy push-button action lights up details for even more discoveries. Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included).

Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.What's in the Box?AmScope M30 microscopeShrimp hatcheryBrine shrimp eggsSpecimen slicerPetri dishPlastic tweezersPlastic scalpelPlastic spatulaNeedlePlastic stirring rodGraduated cylinderEosinGum media (bottle)Sea salt(5) Prepared slides(7) Blank slides(7) Slide covers(7) Statistical slide covers(7) Slide labels(2) Collecting vials(2) AA batteriesSpare LED bulbPlastic carrying case

A Genuine Scientific Device!View larger Dual LED Illumination!View larger # 1 Best-Selling Microscope! From the multi-awarded My First Lab microscope series comes the MFL Duo-Scope, Winner of The Top Toy Award by Creative Child Magazine and Still the # 1 Best Selling Microscope; specially designed and developed to allow young scientists, ages nine and over, to examine specimens such as Blood Cells or Organ Tissue on real microscope slides, as well as view small solid objects like Plants, Coins and Insects. With its Dual cool LED illumination, the Duo-Scope is two microscopes in one, in that it can function as either a compound microscope, with the light shining up from underneath, for viewing microscope slides, or it can function as a dissecting stereo microscope, where the light shines down from above, for use when observing solid objects. The Duo-Scope assures that everyone will be amazed by the detail in the magnified images they will now be able to see. A Real Biological Microscope! The Duo-Scope is an authentic, scientist-grade, biological microscope and is not to be confused with TOYS, which claim to offer higher magnifications but are unable offer CLARITY. The Duo-Scope uses real optical glass lenses that have been specially crafted to provide the user with crystal-clear 40x, 100x, and 400x magnification, to view slides or solid objects through a 10x eyepiece, which also functions as a magnifying glass when removed from the eyepiece tube and turned over. Designed for Maximum Portability! Designed for maximum portability, the Duo-Scope features an impact-resistant frame and is AA battery powered, so whether examining the surface of a coin in the attic, studying a tiny insect's hairy legs in the garage, or checking out different rocks and leaves in the yard, the Duo-Scope is the ideal companion for venturing out into the Exciting World of Science. Frequently Asked Questions: Q – I SAW ANOTHER MICROSCOPE WITH 1600X MAGNIFICATION. IS THAT MICROECSPE BETTER BECAUSE IT OFFERS ME A HIGHER MAGNIFICATION? A – Not exactly. A higher magnification does not always translate into a better microscope since clarity is the most important attribute to consider. At 1000X magnification, OIL between the objective and lens is sometimes required in order to achieve better clarity. We have carefully selected a range of magnification that will be easily viewed by our young scientists to avoid frustration when making adjustments to higher magnifications. Q – CAN THE DUO SCOPE BE USED FOR REAL-LIFE EDUCATIONAL APPLICATIONS, LIKE SCHOOL PROJECTS? A – Absolutely Yes! , the Duo-Scope is an authentic laboratory-grade scientific tool that will accompany the user all through their high-school education.Q – HOW DO I KNOW WHAT MICROSCOPE TO BUY? A - The type of microscope to buy depends on your intended application, because basically, STEREO MICROSCOPES, Offer lower magnification and are primarily intended for applications that require you to “work” in a...

AmScope M158C-E Compound Monocular Microscope, WF10x and WF25x Eyepieces, 40x-1000x Magnification, Brightfield, LED Illumination, Plain Stage, 110V, Includes 0.3MP Camera and Software
Manufacturer: United Scope LLC.
The AmScope M158C-E monocular compound microscope has a 10x widefield and 25x widefield eyepiece, a forward-facing nosepiece with three DIN achromatic objectives, Brightfield LED illumination, a 0.65 NA single-lens condenser, and a plain stage. The integrated 0.3MP CMOS sensor has a removable USB 2.0 output to capture or display still or video images on a computer or projector. The forward-facing revolving nosepiece has 4x, 10x, and 40x DIN achromatic objectives that provide color correction of magnified images. The monocular viewing head has one 10x widefield eyepiece on a fixed 45-degree vertical inclination to reduce eye and neck strain and 360-degree rotation capability to provide a more comprehensive view and enable sharing. A digital compound microscope is used for inspection and dissection specimens when two-dimensional images are desired, and where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required. The microscope includes a 0.3MP camera that has a CMOS color sensor for displaying still and video images, or streaming live video to a computer or projector. The Brightfield (BF) camera-type produces dark images on a light background. The camera can be mounted in any 23mm, 30mm, or 30.5mm eyepiece, and is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 (includes drivers). The camera includes a Windows-only compatible image capture and editing software package that provides still image and live video capture and editing. The software supports JPG, TIF, GIF, PSD, WMF, and BMP file formats. Editing features include stitching, EDF (extended depth of field), note insertion, and adding shapes and watermarks. The microscope has lower (diascopic) Brightfield illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. Brightfield (BF) illumination allows the specimen to absorb light, resulting in a dark image on a light background. LED illumination provides bright, cool light for working with temperature-sensitive or live specimens. The 0.65 NA single-lens condenser and six-hole disc diaphragm control the amount of light illuminating the specimen. Coaxial coarse focus eases use for young viewers. The plain stage has an opening for light transmission and stage clips to secure the slide or specimen in place while viewing. A stage stop prevents the stage or specimen from coming into contact with the objectives. The microscope has three AA batteries (sold separately) and a power adapter to allow the microscope to be used away from power sources. The solid-metal frame has a stain-resistant enamel finish for durability.SpecificationsHeadCompound monocularEyepiecesWF10x, WF25xObjectives4X, 10x, 40xS achromaticStagePlainLighting configurationTransmitted (lower)CondenserSingle lensDiaphragmDisc diaphragmLight sourceLED, 4.5VIllumination typeBrightfieldPower110V/60Hz or three AA batteriesCamera SpecificationsResolution0.3MPImage typeStill and live videoFile formatsJPG, TIF, GIF, PSD, WMF, BMPSen...
