Product Description:

This is a fine little starter set for your younger scientists. This durable, plastic microscope has three objectives (4X, 10X, 40X) and a 10X eyepiece, dual-focus knob, top and bottom LED lighting, and operates on 3 AA batteries (not included). Top lighting allows you to look at tiny solid objects (such as the details on a coin), and bottom lighting allows you to look at prepared slides or your own created slides. Also included in the set are enough items to get your curious researchers started: brine shrimp egg specimen, yeast specimen vial, 3 empty specimen vials, graduated cylinder, 8 blank slides, hatchery, specimen slicer, 3 prepared slides, 8 slide labels and cover slips, plastic pipette, magnifying glass, plastic forceps and manual. The manual includes information about your scope and accompanying items, operating instructions and a few suggestions for observation. This is very much like the one my daughter began with in early elementary school and we progressed from there! ~ Donna

Up to 400x magnification. Fantastic microscope for kids for this price. Comes with many accessories. My 11 year old son said he's surprised at the quality - that it looked like a toy but works just excellent. GREAT buy!
