Any of these student microscopes here provide excellent quality at a low price - so that you can get the best classroom-quality features for your brightfield studies (in relation to fine focus, optical glass, boom stands, phase contrast, metal frames, mechanical stages, eyepieces, abbe condensers, etc. ) without hurting your budget! Most have a lifetime warranty to ensure you can use the same microscope for years to come, and many feature high-quality LED illumination or halogen light. Choose from microscopes with a monocular, binocular, or dual-head and between 40-1000x power objectives.
For most students and families interested in widefield microscopy, we recommend the Home Microscope; this bestselling LED light microscope is ideal for students who are studying life science and biology in junior high and up. If you have a younger child who loves science, but you don’t want to make a longer-term investment, we highly recommend the kids model. It's a great tool for teaching children how to use a real microscope in the future! For an advanced student looking for an excellent research microscope, a great choice that would allow them to see even more detail is the iris diaphragm and 1000x magnification microscope. You can even pair many of these student microscopes with microscope cameras - enhancing your microscope studies all the more!
