When you're looking at microscopes for sale, you have a lot to consider.

Is a compound microscope what you need, or is a stereo microscope the way to go? Is the price of name brand microscopes worth it? Or can you get the same product quality for less money? Is there a difference between microscopes for kids and microscopes for teenagers? What type of eyepiece and objective lenses, phase contrast, light source, electron beam, total magnification, and different angles should you be considering?

We get it! Investing in a children's microscope is an important decision—for your budget and their education. And we can help.
