Description

The C and A Scientific Premiere MSK-01L Basic Monocular Compound Microscope has a 10 x eyepiece with pointer, a forward-facing nosepiece with three objectives, LED illumination, nested coarse and fine focus, disc diaphragm, and a mechanical stage. The monocular viewing head has a fixed inclination to reduce eye and neck strain. An eyepiece pointer is used to identify features for students. A forward-facing nosepiece eases changing objectives. A basic compound microscope is used in classroom, home school, and hobbyist settings for inspection and dissection of specimens when two-dimensional images are desired.

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. The LED light source provides bright, cool light for working with temperature-sensitive or live specimens, and has a six-hole disc diaphragm to control the amount of light illuminating the specimen. The mechanical stage locks the slide into place and provides precise slide manipulation along the X- and Y-axes Coaxial coarse and fine focus knobs are nested to speed focusing for left-and right-handed viewers.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. 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.

�Arrived on time.Came as stated. Some slides would have been nice for the price point, but will receive later.Will use at home for reference. Important part for me is the stage moves.

If you have a limited budget and need mechanical stage, this is the microscope you need. I agree with all the top reviews and will be using mine for the same purposes.

Great microscope for doing animal fecal tests

Great microscope for doing animal fecal tests. Nice and light and easy to store. My only complaint is that the slide doesn't move quite far enough to see the one long edge of the glass slide.
