Monocular Compound Microscope, 10x Eyepiece, 40x-400x Magnification, Brightfield, Tungsten Illumination, Plain Stage with Stage Clips

MS-01 Basic Monocular Compound Microscope has a 10x eyepiece with pointer, a forward-facing nosepiece with three DIN achromatic objectives that are parcentered and parfocal, tungsten illumination, nested coarse and fine focus, disc diaphragm, and a plain stage with stage clips. The monocular viewing head has a fixed inclination to reduce eye and neck strain, and 360-degree rotation capability to enable sharing. An eyepiece pointer is used to identify features for students.

Achromatic objectives provide colour correction of magnified images. Parcentered and parfocal objectives ensure that the image stays centred and focused when the magnification is changed. A forward-facing nosepiece eases changing objectives. The 40xR objective is retractable and spring-loaded to prevent damage to the slide or objective when focusing. A basic compound microscope is used in classroom, home school, and hobbyist settings for inspection and dissection of specimens when two-dimensional images are desired.

The microscope has lower (diascopic) Brightfield illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. Brightfield (BF) illumination allows the specimen to absorb light, resulting in a dark image on a light background. The tungsten (incandescent) light source provides bright light, and has a six-hole disc diaphragm to control the amount of light illuminating the specimen. The plain stage has an opening for light transmission, and stage clips to secure the slide or specimen in place while viewing. Coaxial coarse and fine focus knobs are nested to speed focusing for left-and right-handed viewers.
