Category Description for Microscope Models 3000FF & 3000FF-100:

Two better-quality microscopes for high school. Both have the following features:

  • 10X wide-field eyepiece with pointer, mounted at a 45° angle
  • monocular head with 360° rotation
  • 4X, 10X, 40X (retractable) objectives which are DIN achromatic, parcentered, parfocal and color-coded
  • coaxial coarse and fine focusing
  • positive stage stops to prevent damage to optics or specimens
  • tension adjustment to eliminate stage drift
  • Model 3000F features stage with 0.65 N.A. condenser with 5 hole disc diaphragm. Model 3000F-100 adds a fourth objective (a 100X retractable oil immersion lens which yields a 1000X magnification) and a mechanical stage with 1.25 abbe condenser iris diaphragm. The mechanical stage allows horizontal movement of the specimen in both X and Y directions in 0.1 mm graduations and features spring loading for exact positioning of the specimen.

    Due to a change by the manufacturer, fluorescent light sources have been phased out and now all 3000F models feature LED light sources. Models ending in LED are corded models and those ending in RC are cordless rechargeable and include an AC adapter. Replacement bulbs are available for LED models and previous models; please note that if you purchased your LED model after 9/09 it is probably the snap-in type (but check your existing bulb assembly to make sure). These models have a limited 5-year warranty.

    To use with our high school science. We have a microscope but its magnification won't be sufficient.

    Does this microscope have a slip clutch that would help prevent damage to the internal gears if the focus gears are overturned?
    A shopper on Dec 30, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Here are some notes from the Instruction Manuel that will hopefully answer your question..."the reduction system allows for movement on a single ball bearing dove-way for smooth accurate focusing control....safety rack stop controls the maximum upward movement of the stage by the coarse focus system, preventing high power objectives from breaking a specimen slide....it is important to note that because of our built-in stop the 4X and 10X objectives can never come in contact with your slides. The 40X may occasionally touch the micro-slide but because these objectives have retractable mounts your slide will not be damaged."
    I hope this is helpful. I am new to microscope use but we are planning to use the Microscope Adventures unit study guide suggested by the (very helpful) Rainbow advisor we spoke to by phone.
