The Discovery Centi 02 microscope is designed for users who are just beginning to learn the basics of biology and want to explore the microworld. This model is easy to use as it requires no special knowledge or skills and includes more than 25 accessories. Along with the microscope comes the "Invisible World" book of knowledge, which will be a great help on the way to science.
It is a monocular microscope with a revolver nosepiece holding three lenses. The magnification range varies from 100x to 900x. To observe a specimen, place it on a stage and secure it with specimen holders. A diaphragm disk under the microscope stage allows you to adjust the illumination of the working area. The light source is a dual illumination system. A mirror is on one side of it and an incandescent lamp is on the other side. Therefore, you can use both natural and artificial light.
In addition to the microscope, the kit includes more than 25 accessories, i.e. an experiment kit with all of the necessary tools and chemicals. The "Invisible World" knowledge book is another great accessory. This colorful textbook is written in easy-to-understand language, terms are not too complex, and it is graphically illustrated. The book describes some simple experiments that you can conduct right at home. The book also tells you about microscopes and microorganisms.
