This affordable yet sophisticated lab-quality microscope provides enhanced optics and advanced materials & mechanics. This compound microscope has a monocular head with a 10x eyepiece and improved DIN achromatic, parcentered, and parfocaled objectives deliver enhanced optical clarity with 40x, 100x, 400x, and 1000x magnification.

Focusing is smooth, precise, and reliable with coaxial fine and coarse control knobs and ball-bearing rack-and-pinion mechanics. The 125 x 130 mm integrated mechanical stage offers easy, accurate slide positioning with coaxial controls and 30 x 70 mm x-y movement. A rack-focused 1.25 N.A. Abbe condenser, iris diaphragm with filter holder, and long-life, cool, bright LED illumination with variable-intensity control allow you to easily optimize color and contrast resolution.

The Advanced Microscope comes with an operating manual, filter set (blue, green, yellow), dust cover, spare bulb, immersion oil, and Home Science Tools lifetime warranty. It is an excellent choice for studying microscopy in middle school, high school, and beyond.

About the Advanced Microscope


As part of our ongoing commitment to make high-quality science tools accessible for everyone, we proudly introduce our new Advanced Microscope series. These are built to stringent standards that are even greater than our highly-acclaimed Home Science Tools educational microscopes. Each lab-quality microscope undergoes rigorous testing and inspection before we pass them along to you.

Because we work directly with the manufacturer, you'll enjoy standard science industry specifications without the premium price tag. DIN objective lenses, long relief eyepieces, variable-intensity LED lighting, and smooth, reliable mechanics, make these the obvious choice for education and laboratory professionals who demand quality but don't want to pay brand-name premium prices.

This is why we can say with confidence that while you can always find cheaper microscopes, you won't find better quality laboratory microscopes for your money.
