Discovery Pico is a monocular biological microscope with the achromatic optics designed especially for beginner users. It is well suited for studying the microbial world at school and college as well as your first introduction to microbiology. The microscope is robust, easy to use, renders a sharp and detailed image, and comes with the "Invisible World" knowledge book.
The microscope features a monocular head. It can be rotated 360° horizontally, thereby making observations more convenient. The head can also be tilted 30°. This tilt is comfortable for a long-term study. The optical system includes achromatic objectives with 4x, 10x, and 40x magnification and a 10x wide-field eyepiece. The 40x objective features a spring-loaded frame that protects the front lens. The microscope magnification range is from 40x to 400x. The optics are made of glass.
The dual LED Illumination allows for studying samples of any degree of transparency: opaque, semi-transparent, and transparent. The illumination brightness is adjustable. You can use standard batteries (included) or AC power (adapter included) to power the backlight.
The slides are fixed on the stage with clips. There is a diaphragm disk for regulating the luminous flux from lower LED under the stage. The microscope features coarse and fine focusing so that you can adjust the sharpness faster and more convenient. The microscope’s body is made of metal.
The kit includes the "Invisible World" knowledge book about the microbial world. She tells about tiny creatures that can be studied under a microscope, about the structure of a microscope, and scientific experiments that can be carried out right at home. The book is written in simple language with a reduction of complex scientific terms and contains bright illustrations.
