Levenhuk 5ST Microscope is a modern tool perfect for use both at home and in a professional laboratory. Due to the long working distance (160 mm, 6.3 in) of this lab microscope, you will be able to study everything you wish, including geological samples, jewelry, watches, textiles, agricultural products and more.
The optics in this modern measuring microscope render a high-quality image of observed objects, which allows for detailed studies of specimens and precise measurements of their dimensions.
With a WF10x eyepiece and objective lenses of 2x and 4x, this laboratory microscope yields magnification from 20x to 40x. The binocular head of the Levenhuk 5ST is inclined at 60 degrees, so that you may observe the specimens for a long time without getting tired.
The interpupillary distance of the binocular head may be adjusted within 54-76 mm (2.1-3 in) range for additional comfort during observations. The image is brought into focus by turning the coarse focus wheel on the microscope body. The upper and lower illumination sources provide the necessary illumination for your observations.
For much more effective observations, the stage plate may be rotated so that it faces either the black or the white side upwards, to increase the contrast of the observed specimen.
The kit includes:
- Levenhuk stereo microscope
- Binocular head
- 10x eyepiece - 2 pieces
- Two objective lenses: 2x, 4x
- Silicon case
- Matte glass stage
- Stage plate with black and white sides
- Rubber eyecups
- User manual and lifetime warranty
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.
