Product Description:

Attach this portable microscope to your phone or tablet and go explore tiny worlds. Great for introducing the miniscule, and viewers of all ages will appreciate the larger viewing space. We tried this on two different, slightly older model cell phones (with and without cases) with good success. Viewing seems best without a case (I recommend a case with wet slides). Magnification varies based on your rear-facing camera’s strength. The autofocus feature on the scope worked well on the prepared slides we tried, but don’t expect college-level study ability. We were impressed with the visuals; the included prepared slide (ours was a honeybee leg) showed lots of definition. Beware of possible scratching and lens debris. Comes with a button battery (replace with a small Phillips screwdriver, not included), prepared slide, and a 2-inch square of paper lens cloth. Includes directions, cleaning supplies, and recipes for saline solution and creating food color stains. You’ll need your own slides and cover slips for additional study. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

This High Powered Microscope fits in your pocket!

The ScienceWiz Clip-On Microscope includes a scratch-resistant, industrial grade 200 - 400X digital magnification lens (resolving power depends on the camera lens and number of pixels in the smart device).

  • The universal microscope clip works with most smart phones and tablet cameras. It includes a stand with metal clips to hold a standard microscope slide in place.
  • Given the large working distance ABOVE the slide, you can actually observe directly on the digital screen as you build your own slides. It works with the smart device's standard camera and photo Apps to record the microscope images either as a photo, a video or in time lapse.
  • This microscope is perfect for students, lab work or field work.
  • The lens magnification pairs with the built-in camera lens to autofocus.
  • It works in BOTH selfie mode and with the front camera.
  • The light source is included.
  • Seriously, you TOTALLY want this! You're friends won't believe it, but then you will show them what they've been missing!
