Illuminated Pocket Microscope
A small, portable microscope that is ideal for young children, adolescents and adults to investigate a multitude of items including clothing fibres, plants, insects or any other scientific specimen. The microscopes are small (14cm x 4.5cm), light (80grams) and easy to grip, manoeuvre and adjust. The light source is strong. These small but powerful instruments are ideal for in the classroom, outside in the school yard, or for taking on excursions and fieldwork. They are fully portable and no bench or table is necessary for resting on.
