    Retail: $0.00
    Rainbow Price: $0.90

    Concave slides are perfect for viewing living organisms. The single depression in the center of the 1"x 3" glass slide measures .5mm to .8 mm in depth, which allows for viewing without damaging or squashing the organism. They don't dry out as quickly as a regular slide because you are able to include more liquid with your specimen. The slides have rounded edges and are reusable.

    In a side-by-side comparison with the Observer IID and the 3000FF, I thought these offered a slight advantage over the Observer, and they were pretty much on-par with the 3000FF model as well. The clarity was excellent, and the illumination was bright and easily adjustable. They were easy-to-use, and I especially loved the mechanical stage on Model AP1510WL (it took me back to the vet school histology lab there for a moment!). Features of both models AP1500 and AP1510 include:

    • - Monocular 45 inclined head
    • - 360 head rotation
    • - 10X wide field eyepiece with built-in pointer
    • - Revolving nosepiece with objectives and click stops
    • - Coaxial coarse and fine focusing with built-in slip clutch
    • - 4X, 10X, 40XR objectives, all DIN achromatic, parfocaled, parcentered, and color-coded
    • - Positive stops to prevent slide damage
    • - adjustable LED illumination
    • - Rechargable battery power and an AC charger

    Both are excellent microscopes, and of excellent quality, but we wanted to offer a more "basic" version and a fancier version to suit both needs. Model AP1500WL includes all the features found in the list, and features a stage with spring-loaded clips to hold the slide, as well as a 0.65 N.A. condenser, and a 6-hole disc diaphragm. Model AP1510WL offers more options, including a 100X, oil-immersion objective, a moveable 1.25 abbe N.A. condenser iris diaphragm, and a mechanical stage. The mechanical stage is a terrific feature that's hard to wean from once you've tried it; it allows the user to move the slide using two knobs, one that moves the slide's horizontal position, and another that adjusts its vertical position on the stage. No more fingerprinted slides or "oops, where did it go?", just because you moved the slide by hand in the wrong direction, or with more force than you intended. Both models include a dust cover, a charger and basic instructions. Model AP1510WL also includes immersion oil and a blue disc filter. We think you'll be very happy with either of these excellent student microscopes. Both of the microscopes below now feature LED illumination, which replaced the 20W tungsten bulb models we had previously. We do offer replacement bulbs for the older models and the LED models if needed. - Jess

    This model is good-quality and offers just about everything a "real" high-school quality microscope does. Model includes the features below:

    • - 10X wide field eyepiece with pointer, mounted at a 45 angle
    • - 360 rotatable head
    • - Revolving nosepiece with click stops
    • - 4X, 10X, and 40X(R) objectives, all 45mm, achromatic, parfocaled and parcentered
    • - Coaxial coarse and fine focus knobs
    • - 90mm x 90mm stage with spring-mounted stage clips
    • - Adjustable LED illumination
    • - Adjustable slide stop to prevent slide damage
    • - Fixed condenser and 6-hole rotating disc diaphragm
    • - Durable metal body

    This very durable, high-quality but economical microscope will certainly do the job if you are not planning on tackling high school science at home, or you would prefer to not invest several hundred dollars in a better-quality scope. Although LED bulbs lasts far longer than tungsten bulbs, we do have replacements should you need them.

    Microscope activity books are great if you already have everything you need to start making your own slides, but what if you don't? That's why I like this kit. The experiment manual is solid enough to stand on its own - a rarity in most science kits today - and the kit includes everything you need to begin using the microscope, exploring prepared slides, and preparing and making your own slides. The full-color 48-page manual begins by explaining microscope use and care, as well as how to safely make thin slices from specimens using a scalpel or razor blade. Then young scientists are ready to start observing! The following sections focus on viewing cells of different types, including cheek cells, onion skin, onion cells affected by salt, egeria/elodea, various fruits and vegetables, starch from foodstuffs, hydra, pollen grains, salt and sugar crystals, insect wings, insect specimens, mushrooms, root hairs, watermelon water ducts, blades of grass, leaves, hair, nettle hairs, and feathers. Each section provides informational text about the subject viewed, detailed instructions on how to make and mount the specimen, tips on specimen-making techniques, and photos of photographed specimens under the microscope. Since the student will probably not be very proficient at preparing their own slides, several prepared slides are included as examples, and the more difficult-to-make specimens are saved for later in the book. The photos of example specimens are also helpful for beginners. Unlike many microscope kits, this one actually has a fairly decent microscope. It is constructed of metal and plastic microscope and has pretty good focusing ability. Features include: a monocular 10X eyepiece, 4X, 10X and 40X glass objective lenses (for 40X, 100X and 400X total magnification). The microscope includes two bright LED lights, one above and one below the stage. This kit would be a great choice for a microscope study, along with a science curriculum, or just for the interested student, especially if you are not planning on investing in a good-quality microscope in the future. Kit includes the experiment manual, microscope, blank slides, prepared slides, coverslips, tweezers, a dissection needle, a scalpel, a pipette, Petri dish with lid, stain, lens paper, blank labels for slides, and a dust cover for the microscope. Microscope requires 3 AA batteries (not included). - Jess

    If you're looking for a good starter set for dissection, this may be the one. This set includes a 10" x 6" sturdy, plastic tray; a fitted, reusable pad; scissors; a probe; forceps; and a teacher guide. A cover that fits over the tray will help you keep your set together. This size of tray and pad is the perfect size for smaller specimens such as an earthworm, frog, clam, or grasshopper. You'll notice this kit doesn't include a scalpel, as it is assumed you have access to one. Instruments are sharp, and students should use caution in working with them. Won't it be fun working with your student when they dissect for the first time? ~ Donna
