What To Look For In Purchasing A Student Microscope Set
If you're looking for a student microscope that your future scientists can use for their academic pursuits, there are a lot of value-priced microscopes in the market today. Just because they don't cost a fortune doesn't mean they have limited features. For academic activities, these affordable microscopes would suffice, and some of them may exceed your expectations.
When choosing a student microscope from many reasonably priced options, you just have to ensure that the microscope you are considering possess some indispensable attributes that will make them perfect for any academic undertaking. These features are:
* Focus. The microscope should be capable of delivering both course and fine focus. These levels of focus are used for two different studies, so it is a must that your microscope should be able to allow such views.
* Magnification. The purpose of a microscope is to magnify a given view so that closer study of the specimen's surface can be gained. The microscope you are considering should possess AT LEAST a 400x magnification. It will be better, of course, if it can provide as much as 1,000x magnification.
* Illumination. Once magnification takes place, the surface being viewed would naturally darken. Hence, the student microscope should be able to provide excellent lighting for a more efficient study of the specimen. Common lighting sources are Tungsten and fluorescent.
* Stage. The stage is where the specimen will be placed. Ideally, the stage should be mechanical, so that it can easily be adjusted even when the user's eye is locked on the lens. There are also many kinds of stages. Flat stages are for slide samples, usually containing specimens in liquid form. There are also stages with hole-like contours, as these are often used for solid specimens. When you will purchase a student microscope, such would usually come with both kinds of stages.
* Slides. These are the platforms you will place on the stage. There are many kinds of slides, but just like stages, most microscopes can be purchased with a set of these slides.
For parents, a microscope is a sound investment for their kids and their kids' future, more so when their son or daughter is planning on embarking on a journey to excel in the fields of biology and chemistry in preparation for a medical, pharmaceutical or even an engineering career. There is sure to be a microscope set perfect for your budget.
