    <p>Bright and stylish Rainbow 2L PLUS microscopes are the logical continuation of the Levenhuk Rainbow 2L series. New microscopes combine all the advantages of the previous line with new, favorable features. These microscopes are equipped with two illumination systems – that means you can observe transparent, semi-transparent, and opaque microscope samples.</p> <p>Each model comes with a Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit – this kit will help young researches with their first independent experiments and research. The main difference of the new microscopes is their improved optics. They produce higher magnification power (up to 640x) and can be used for serious research by biology students. All microscopes are equipped with a spring-loaded objective lens – its design prevents any damage, even if the objective touches the slide during the focusing process.</p> <p>Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS microscopes have reliable metal bodies – they are known for its long service life even when used intensively in colleges or laboratories. And, of course, we should mention their modern design and five bright body colors – one of these beautiful microscopes will look very nice in your child’s room or on your desktop.</p> <p><a id="sfd" href="#more" onclick="showFullDesc()">View full description</a></p>

    See Levenhuk Rainbow Microscopes in action

    The world around us is full of amazing things, but some of them are unfortunately invisible to the human eye. To see all the wonders of the microcosm you will need a good instrument for observations, and Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS Moonstone is just perfect for that! This microscope has a wide range of magnification from 64x to 640x. This instrument allows you to study plants and insects, observe microorganisms, as well as check coins for scratches invisible to the naked eye and many other things. The kit includes everything required for introduction to the Microworld. Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS Moonstone Microscope is a perfect choice for inquisitive pupils and biology students.

    High-quality optics
    The optical elements are made of a highly transparent glass – these optics allow reducing image distortion to a minimum. Multiple layers of special coating on the lenses increase the percentage of transmitted light. Thanks to the high-quality optics, images are always sharp and contrast – you will see all the tiniest details of the studied sample.
    The microscope is equipped with three objective lenses producing 64x, 160x, and 640x magnification. The 40xs objective lens has a special spring-loaded mechanism – even if a beginner accidently touches the sample with the objective, the spring-loaded lens will slightly retract, preventing any damage to the optics or sample.

    Universal illumination
    The microscope is equipped with two illumination systems. Lower illumination is used for transparent samples - the light passes through the specimen, forming an image. This method can be applied for observing microorganisms in a water drop or the finest cuts of plants. Upper illuminator reflects light off of the sample, allowing you to observe opaque objects such as different types of paper, coin, and cloth. If you want to observe a translucent (semi-transparent) object, you should use both upper and lower illuminations simultaneously. Adjustable brightness allows you to choose optimal level of lighting for each particular sample.

    Reliability and comfort
    The microscope has a reliable metal body and, therefore, can be used in schools and colleges for biology and chemistry lessons. The head is set at an angle of 45 degrees - it allows the most comfortable observing position. The monocular head can be rotated 360 degrees around its axis, which is really convenient for working in a group – you don’t need to move the microscope itself; just turn the microscope head.
    Illumination works in AC and battery power modes, so you can use it outdoors or in a greenhouse.

    Caution: Please refer to the specifications table for the correct mains voltage and never attempt to plug a 110V device into 220V outlet and vice versa without using a converter. Remember that mains voltage in the U.S. and Canada is 110V and 220-240V in most European countries.

    Experiment kit
    Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit that comes in the package will be really useful for those just starting to explore the microcosm. The kit includes ready-to-use microscope slides, tools for preparing your own samples, a user guide with useful information about the microscope’s construction, recommendations for its use, and description of interesting experiments you can conduct with this instrument.

    Sean Palmer (2017-01-30 09:52): Positive
    How to properly use the disk with diaphragms integrated in the stage of the device? What position is considered standard (from which position of the disk should I start my observations) and what visible changes should I notice? Levenhuk Customer Service:
    The diaphragm is a disk located beneath a high-powered microscope's stage, usually having five holes of different diameters. When turning the disk, the amount of light passing through the hole in the stage is changed - it helps to correctly illuminate different samples, increase their contrast and resolution. The largest aperture is standard.

    Sean Palmer (2017-01-27 12:45): Positive
    Is it possible to replace the bright field condenser with the dark field one? If this model doesn’t allows this, them which inexpensive models do? Levenhuk Customer Service:
    Inexpensive models do not allow this. Levenhuk 320 Biological Microscope (https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/microscopes/levenhuk-320/) does.

    Harry Bowen (2017-01-16 12:13): Positive

    Irrelevant, but why do I need a slide with depression? Levenhuk Customer Service:
    Such microscope slides are required for experiments using the Hanging Drop method

    Jim and Gill (2016-11-09 08:36): Positive
    Good time of day! We are looking for a family microscope, we have 7 yo kid. We take microscope as a mean of self-education and learning. Does it make sense to pay more for the 2L PLUS model? I mean as far as I know you can see a lot of interesting stuff under 400x, why pay extra? Maybe 2L PLUS with its 640x magnification is capable of something more? I heard somewhere that with high magnification images loose their 'volume'. Please help us decide on the right model. Thank you Levenhuk Customer Service:
    Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS does not loose in image quality while having higher magnification. Another advantage the PLUS model is a body made of metal.

    Elaine Bird (2016-10-30 11:57): Positive
    Is this microscope suitable for a kid 11 yo? Is it suitable for observing red blood cells? Levenhuk Customer Service:
    Yes, Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS Moonstone is a perfect choice for a 11 years old child. Yes, this model allows for observations of red blood cells, but not their movement. In order to see the movement of red blood cells you will need a more powerful model, for example Levenhuk 320 Biological Microscope (https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/microscopes/levenhuk-320/).

    Carroll Good (2016-10-17 07:55): Positive
    is their any difference between stage moving mechanisms in plastic and metal models? What eyepieces would you recommend for this model? Levenhuk Customer Service:
    Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS and Levenhuk Rainbow 2L metal and plastic microscopes have identical stage moving mechanisms. You can buy any eyepieces with 23.2mm barrel diameter. We recommend eyepieces with magnification power no more than 16x.

    Mathew Reed (2016-10-17 06:29): Positive
    what are the differences between this model and Levenhuk Rainbow 50L PLUS? (besides Barlow lens and design). What material are they made of? Levenhuk Customer Service:
