Stylish and attractive, Levenhuk Rainbow 2L Microscope can turn even the most boring biology class into enthralling research. This microscope allows children to find out what things around them are made of, to study insects and plants, see whether yogurt really does contain living organisms, and many other interesting things. Levenhuk Rainbow 2L comes with an experiment kit, which means that a young explorer can start using the microscope right away.
Microscope lenses are made of special optical glass with a high level of transparency. Optical surfaces are additionally covered with multilayer coating, which increases light transmission and enhances image quality. This model comes with three objective lenses, so the microscope is capable of providing 40–400x magnification. Changing magnification is very easy – all you need to do is to turn the revolving nosepiece.
Versatility – study both transparent and non-transparent samples
One of the main advantages of this microscope is the ability to observe both transparent and opaque samples. For this purpose the microscope is equipped with two illumination sources. Lower illumination is used for observing transparent samples–for example, thin slices of plants and insects. Upper illumination allows for observing opaque objects such as small stones, coins and bills and many others. You can also observe semitransparent samples by turning both illuminations on. The selection of interesting samples to study is only limited by their size and the observer’s imagination.
The plastic body of this microscope is a lot lighter than those made of metal – the microscope is easy and comfortable to take along to school, for a walk or when visiting friends. At the same time, the microscope is very sturdy, so it’s perfect for intense use. In order to provide more comfort during observations, the head is inclined at 45°. Illumination can be powered by either an electrical outlet or 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.
Thanks to the included Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit, young scientists won’t have to puzzle over where to start their research. The kit includes prepared microscope slides, all necessary tools and a colorful guide that contains all required information on the microscope’s construction, recommendations on preparing new microscope slides, and descriptions of interesting experiments.
