The MicroXplore 5mp LCD Digital Microscope lets you enjoy microscopic views either through an optical eyepiece, or through the included 3.5" LCD display screen. This crowd-pleasing and educational microscope includes 3 objective lenses (4x, 10x, and 40x), which coupled with the 10x and 16x eyepieces provide an optical magnification range of 40x to 640x. And when coupled with the LCD screen and digital zoom, you can achieve powers up to 960x to reveal a hidden world of microscopic wonders, all while the crowd views the LCD screen, instead of individually peering through an eyepiece.

A sturdy micro-motion X/Y control stage lets you accurately position microscope slides and specimens for microscopic study. 4x, 10x, and 40x selectable objective lenses make it easy to optimize your observations. The big, 3.5" LCD monitor is ideal for comfortable studies of microscopic specimens.

This powerful microscope is capable of capturing jpeg images and movies of microscopic views with its sharp, 5 megapixel CMOS sensor. You can save images and movies to the included SD card, which also allows you to transfer the images to a computer quickly and easily.

This fun and educational digital microscope is capable of transmitted light and limited light microscopy with top and bottom LED illumination, and features brightness control for enhanced studies. With a great set of included accessories, the MicroXplore LCD Digital Microscope is ideal for curious minds looking to explore microscopic worlds. Five prepared slides are included to get you started, and 5 blanks slides allow you to create your own specimen slides for microscopic inspection. Also included are tweezers, USB cable, AC adapter, SD card, hatchery, sea salt, yeast, brine shrimp eggs, and gum. The microscope and all accessories fit nicely in the included carry case for on-the-go portable microscopy.
