Parents are often looking for a student microscope that provides sturdiness and precise craftsmanship as an investment in their child's education. The AmScope 40-1000x Advanced Home Student Biological Compound Microscope and digital imager with sturdy metal framework is full featured and of school/lab grade quality.
** This is not a toy. MicroscopeMaster will not review plastic toy microscopes as presenting you with the option of paying the extra $100.00 for a real, well made instrument is a much better value to you and therefore, a better use of our time.
This AmScope student microscope is a mechanically perfect microscope, comes well-packaged, with glass optics which are included in separate protective vials and are easy to install. Bright illumination of specimens - pond life, blood smears and prepared histology slides appear clear - correctly magnified, good resolution.
Does not have moveable stage
Storage case not included
In conjunction with your AmScope 40-1000x Advanced Home Student Biological Compound Microscope, it's best to immediately purchase glass slides and covers, cleaning wipes and a slide case as these are not included and are necessary.
A prepared slides set is also a nice addition especially in a homeschooling setting.
To achieve 2000x magnification you need to purchase the 20x ocular. It is always a good option especially for the serious budding microscopist.
Another bonus is the digital capture. This can also be a consideration to upgrade for later to better catalogue their findings to a computer.
Book recommendation: The World of the Microscope by Chris Oxlade and our very own book available for Kindle and soon to be hard copy.
