# 1 Best-Selling Microscope!

From the multi-awarded My First Lab3 microscope series comes the MFL Duo-Scope.   Winner of The Top Toy Award by Creative Child Magazine and Still the # 1 Best Selling Microscope; specially designed and developed to allow young scientists, ages nine and over, to examine specimens such as blood cells or tissue on real microscope slides, as well as view small solid objects like plants, coins and insects.  With its Dual cool LED illumination, the Duo-Scope is two microscopes in one, in that it can function as either a compound microscope, with the light shining up from underneath, for viewing microscope slides, or it can function as a dissecting stereo microscope, where the light shines down from above, for use when observing solid objects.  The Duo-Scope assures that everyone will be amazed by the detail in the magnified images they will now be able to see.

A Real Biological Microscope!

The Duo-Scope is an authentic, scientist-grade, biological microscope and is not to be confused with TOYS, which claim to offer higher magnifications but are unable offer CLARITY.  The Duo-Scope uses real optical glass lenses that have been specially crafted to provide the user with crystal-clear 40x, 100x, and 400x magnification, to view slides or solid objects through a 10x eyepiece, which also functions as a magnifying glass when removed from the eyepiece tube and turned over.

Designed for Maximum Portability!

Designed for maximum portability, the Duo-Scope features an impact-resistant frame and is AA battery powered, so whether examining the surface of a coin in the attic, studying a tiny insect's hairy legs in the garage, or checking out different rocks and leaves in the yard, the Duo-Scope is the ideal companion for venturing out into the exciting world of science.

Hours of Fun and Learning!

Kids and adults will be amazed by the detailed magnified images they will be able to see of everyday items.  Whether bringing into focus otherwise imperceptible nuances on the surface of a coin or offering a close look at a tiny insect's hairy legs, the Duo-Scope is designed to promote hours of fun and learning through discovery.

You will be impressed with the professional features offered for such a low price!

Manufacturer Description:

The Duo Scope is our most popular microscope in the My First Lab™ series!  Designed with two light sources, this microscope can magnify both slides and solid objects.  View slides, coins, plants, stamps, insects, jewelry, and more!

No longer do you need one basic biological microscope to look at specimens on a slide (light shines up from under the slide and through the tissue) and a traditional stereo or dissecting microscope to view solid objects (light shines down onto the specimen to be observed).  Instead, equipped with dual lighting, the Duo Scope allows for both applications!

Microscope Features:

  • Supports STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning and fun!
  • 10x Eyepiece
  • 40x, 100x and 400x
