Being a LED lit microscope, it is particularly great for the younger students since this allows them to avoid being burnt by touching a hot halogen light source. Moreover, it lasts much longer as compared to the typical halogen bulbs, which is an added advantage.

value, the Omax compound goes up to 2000x (8 levels of magnification
(40X-80X-100X-200X-400X-800X-1000X-2000X) with the 10x and 20x

anything. As such, the Omax compound microscope is an excellent choice for high
school and university level viewing purposes.

a double layer mechanical stage (stain resistant), which allows the user full
movement of the sample for scanning purposes. Therefore, rather than simply
having the clips move around the stage, the entire stage easily moves in the X,
Y and Z dimensions.
This will allow the slide to remain in place whichever way
the user is trying to locate the point of interest. This is one of the
advantages this particular microscope has over others in the market.
In addition to a sliding binocular viewing head, this microscope also comes with four achromatic objectives (4X, 10X, 40X(S), 100X(S, Oil) as well as both a coaxial coarse and fine focus knob.

However, it is important to note that the USB digital camera is sold separately. With all these additional features, this microscope can effectively be used for educational purposes, demonstration and medical labs among others purposes.
One of the other interesting features of this microscope is the stage upward moving lock, which protects both the objective lenses as well as the slides from damage and breakages.

100- Piece cover slips
50 sheet lens cleaning paper
