This Home Science Tools 1000x LED Microscope comes with a lifetime warranty - because you deserve to make a purchasing decision you can trust.

When comparison shopping for a compound or stereo microscope, you'll often find nearly identical specifications across different brands.

About the Home 1000x LED Microscope

Quality. The quality of the Home 1000x LED Microscope is exceptional. These high power student microscopes are built to our own unique specifications for safety, mechanical reliability, optical quality, and overall usability. Then each microscope is inspected and tuned by our experienced microscope technician at our US facility before the microscope is shipped to you. This process ensures you'll receive a high-quality, reliable instrument that is working perfectly - from its eyepiece, to its mechanical stage, to its LED illumination & beyond.

Lighting. The Home 1000x Microscope has long-lasting LED lighting, which is a cooler, brighter illumination than the standard tungsten that most scopes at similar prices have. With variable-intensity LED illumination you'll enjoy more flexibility for viewing greater specimen variety and a 60,000-hour bulb life.

Lifetime Warranty. Unlike some of the other educational microscopes you might see online, Home Science Tools guarantees that your Home Microscope will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for the life of the instrument – so if you have any problems, we are happy to repair or replace your microscope immediately.

Value. The Home 1000x LED Microscope was developed with students and homeschool families in mind. You get an easy, enjoyable-to-use, trouble-free, high-quality compound monocular microscope that will last a lifetime. It is possible to find cheaper microscopes, but we are confident that you won't find better value for your money. Students, families, and hobbyists will love this remarkable science tool.
