Bright and stylish Rainbow 2L PLUS microscopes are the logical continuation of the Levenhuk Rainbow 2L series. New microscopes combine all the advantages of the previous line with new, favorable features. These microscopes are equipped with two illumination systems – that means you can observe transparent, semi-transparent, and opaque microscope samples.
Each model comes with a Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit – this kit will help young researches with their first independent experiments and research. The main difference of the new microscopes is their improved optics. They produce higher magnification power (up to 640x) and can be used for serious research by biology students. All microscopes are equipped with a spring-loaded objective lens – its design prevents any damage, even if the objective touches the slide during the focusing process.
Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS microscopes have reliable metal bodies – they are known for its long service life even when used intensively in colleges or laboratories. And, of course, we should mention their modern design and five bright body colors – one of these beautiful microscopes will look very nice in your child’s room or on your desktop.
Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS biological microscopes are made of only the highest quality materials. The lenses are made of a special optical glass of high transparency. For better light transmission, the optical surfaces are coated with multiple layers of anti-reflective coating, which increases sharpness and contrast of produced images.
The kit includes three objective lenses producing 64x, 160x, and 640x magnification. The most powerful objective lens (40xs) has a special spring-loaded mechanism for optics safety.
One more advantage of the model – the microscope is equipped with two LED illuminations. Lower illumination is used for viewing transparent samples, such as liquids or thin sections of plant and animal tissue. Upper illumination allows for observing opaque objects – paper, minerals, cloth, and metal. If you turn both illuminations on at once, you can observe semi-transparent objects. You can also adjust brightness for a better view.
Durable and convenient body
The reliable body is made of metal – it can easily withstand frequent use and serve you for years to come. For more convenience, the monocular head is inclined at an angle of 45 degrees. Moreover, it can be rotated 360 degrees – and that is very convenient for working in a group; you can just rotate the head itself without moving the microscope.
This instrument can be used indoors and outdoors – the microscope can be powered by an 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.
The package includes Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit. It contains everything needed for your first experiments: ready-to-use microscope slides, special tools for making your own, and a very useful user guide with information about the microscope, recommendations for its use, and experiment descriptions.
