The Discovery Centi 01 microscope is a real find for a beginner biologist who wants to see the incredible beauty of the microworld and study the life of microorganisms. The microscope is easy to use. It is suitable for the study of transparent specimens, including the sets of prepared slides, and it comes with an experiment kit and the educational book "Invisible World".
This is a monocular microscope with a revolving nosepiece holding three lenses and lower illumination. The magnification range varies from 100x to 300x, which is sufficient for entry-level observation. The stage has two specimen holders and a diaphragm disk. The interesting lighting solution: a dual illumination system that consists of an ordinary mirror and a battery-operated incandescent bulb. As a result, both natural and artificial light can be used.
The set includes more than 20 accessories. It is particularly worth mentioning prepared slides, glass slides and cover slips, tools, and chemicals for conducting experiments. As the basic microscope set already has everything you need that makes it a perfect gift. Helpful for any aspiring microbiologist, the "Invisible World" book of knowledge provides basic information about the microworld and the best ways to study it. It contains not only theory but also practical tips for conducting simple scientific experiments.
