When comparison shopping for a compound or stereo microscope on Amazon and beyond, you'll often find nearly identical specifications across different brands. But what you can't tell from the specifications is the microscope's overall quality and reliability. The market is flooded with poorly manufactured, low-cost microscopes that seem like a bargain... until you use them. 

Our high-quality Home Microscope is different. The sturdy, reliable mechanical construction of this kids microscope id designed to withstand the rigor of heavy classroom use and will last a lifetime, It's recommend by over 100+ 5-star reviews!

Its smoothly-rotating head and eyepiece make it easy to share between two or more students, and its precision fine and coarse focusing bring specimens into focus quickly and sharply. This compound microscope features long-life and variable-intensity LED lighting, which provides a bright field of view and is cool enough for use with live specimens. This microscope may very well be the best microscope for your curious learners.

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.
