DESCRIPTION

The Home Microscope is an excellent value for any student! It's a quality compound microscope, with all the features of other good high-school-level microscopes, but at a very affordable price. This powerful tool has the magnification levels to see intricate cell details and the optical quality to see them very clearly, giving your kids the most benefit from their biology microscope labs and independent discovery in a homeschool or classroom setting.

The Home Microscope is also easy to use, so a student of any age can enjoy it. The sturdy, reliable mechanical construction of this compound microscope is designed to withstand the rigor of heavy classroom use and will last a lifetime for your kids.


Explore some of the great features:

  • The Home Microscope has magnification levels of 40, 100, and 400x, which are standard on the best-quality high school student compound microscopes.
  • It has a smoothly-rotating head to make it easy to share between two or more people.
  • The precision fine and coarse focusing brings specimens into focus quickly and sharply, making it an easy microscope for kids to use.
  • This scope features fluorescent lighting, which provides a bright field of view and is cool enough for use with live specimens.
  • And it comes with a lifetime warranty, so it's worry-free.

Choosing a Microscope:

When you comparison shop for a microscope, the specifications are usually very similar. What the specifications can't tell you is the overall quality and reliability of the microscope. There are plenty of poorly manufactured low-cost microscopes on the market that look like a bargain until you start using it.The Home Microscope is different. First, it is built to our unique, high-quality standards. Then our experienced quality control specialists inspect and adjust every Home Microscope in our facility here to ensure it is perfect before we ship it to you. Finally, we back up our top quality commitment with a lifetime warranty on this Home Science Tools microscope.

These extra steps do add some extra cost but are well worth it as they ensure you get an enjoyable-to-use, trouble-free microscope that will last a lifetime. Don't just take our word for it—read the product reviews and see what our customers have to say about the Home Microscope. 

About the Home Microscope

Quality. The quality of the Home Microscope is exceptional. These are all 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.

Lighting. The Home Microscope has fluorescent lighting, which is a cooler, brighter illumination than the standard tungsten that most scopes at similar prices have. With fluorescent illumination you'll have more flexibility for viewing greater specimen variety. For example, you'll be able to study live pond water protozoa for a biology lab with this microscope.

Lifetime Warranty. Unlike some of the other student compound 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 Microscope was developed with students and homeschool families in mind. You get an easy and enjoyable-to-use, trouble-free microscope for your kids 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.
