The Levenhuk D2L NG Digital Microscope allows you to undertake high-quality research and take photos/videos of your observations as well. This model can be connected to a PC using USB interface, the software is included in the package. This microscope is designed to ensure the best possible color rendition of photo and video images, and allows you to view real color images.
The Levenhuk D2L NG was developed for use in schools, colleges and universities. This model features glass optics, unlike the less expensive analogs. The main advantage is two sets of illumination (upper and lower), which allow observing both slices and non-transparent objects (from the tiniest solid particles to coins, etc.). Apart from observing and image capturing on the PC screen, it is also possible to make observations in the visual mode without a camera, since eyepiece (WF16x) is included in the package. The Levenhuk D2L NG Digital Microscope is widely used in various educational institutions.
A USB cable is used as camera power supply and for connection with a PC. Compatible OS: Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7/8/10.

Observing non-transparent objects
The Levenhuk D2L NG Digital Microscope, unlike other teaching microscopes, is equipped with two built-in illuminations. Both illuminations are LED, which ensures minimal energy consumption yet provides sufficient light. Illumination systems are located above and below the stage, and allow observing both transparent and opaque objects.
The microscope features an AC adapter, for stationary observations without batteries.
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.

Hello! I need your advice. I can't decide which one of these two models is better for me: Levenhuk D2L NG or Levenhuk Rainbow 50L. The thing is that I want both camera and high magnification power... how big of a difference is 640x and 1280x? Should I also buy glass slides and coverslips? Levenhuk Customer Service:
If you need a digital microscope, then we recommend the Levenhuk D2L NG model. You can either buy prepared microscope slides or blank glass slides and cover slips to make your own.

Hello there! Which Levenhuk microscope is better for school and university students (and allows observing bacteria). Levenhuk Customer Service:
In order to observe bacteria, you will need 1000x or even 2000x magnification power.

For this purpose we recommend Levenhuk 320 Biological Microscope - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/microscopes/levenhuk-320/.

The increase provided by the camera is comparable to magnification provided by 10x eyepiece, so with digital camera you will be able to obtain the maximum magnification of 1600x.
