Levenhuk Rainbow 50L PLUS Moonstone Microscope
Excellent optics, modern design, robust body. Experiment kit included. Magnification: 64Ð1280x.
Levenhuk Rainbow 50L PLUS Moonstone would be a wonderful present for a school kid who loves biology and other natural sciences. The kit includes everything necessary for a young researcher. Moreover, this microscope would be perfect for medical students as well as lab researchers. Thanks to its wide range of magnification and universal illumination system, this model allows for observing a huge variety of microscope samples. The instrument comes in a very reliable body Ð this microscope is designed for intensive use in colleges and laboratories.
Three objectives allow obtaining 64-640x magnification power. 40xs (most powerful one) objective lens is spring-loaded. It protects the lens and the observed sample during your observations. While focusing, you might accidently lower the lens too much Ð in that case the spring-loaded lens would retract, thereby preventing any possible damage. The quality Barlow lens doubles magnification power of an objective you use Ð the basic kit allows you to achieve 1280x increase!
The lenses are made of a special optical glass that is highly transparent and doesnÕt distort images. For even better light transmission, the optics are coated with a special anti-reflective coating - the images will always be very bright and contrast.
The microscope is equipped with two LED lights. Lower magnification is used for viewing microscope samples in transmitted light Ð such way you can observe the thinnest sections of plant and animal tissues, sugar or salt crystals, and other transparent objects. To observe opaque ones - paper money or stones Ð turn the upper illumination on. When both illuminations are working, you can observe semi-transparent objects. The brightness is adjustable Ð that means you can regulate its intensity until you find the optimal level of light required for a particular sample.
Body design and power supply
The microscope is highly reliable thanks to its durable metal body. This model is designed for intensive use in schools and laboratories. The user wonÕt have any discomfort even when working long hours without any break Ð the microscope head is inclined at 45 degrees, allowing for the most comfortable viewing position. It also rotates 360 degrees around its axis, which is very convenient during group work.
The instrument is powered by AC power. The microscope also runs on batteries so you can use it outdoors.
The microscope comes with the Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit. This kit is all a beginning biologist may desire. It consists of ready-to-use slides, a variety of tools for preparing microscope samples, and a detailed user guide with experiment descriptions.
The reliable plastic case protects the instrument from dust, dirt, or mechanical shock during its storage and transportation.
