From the multi-awarded My First Lab microscope series comes the MFL Duo-Scope, Winner of The Top Toy Award by Creative Child Magazine; specially designed and developed to allow young scientists, ages nine and over, to examine specimens such as Blood Cells or Organ 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.
- Features 40x, 100x &400x magnifications
- Real Glass Optics
- 6 hole disk diaphragm
- Battery Operated
- Extensive, 50 pc accessory kit
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, 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.
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.

Can you see bacteria?
Yes. Bacteria can be seen at the lowest magnification and seen better at the higher magnification.
Can the duo scope be used for real life educational applications like school projects?
Absolutely Yes! , the Duo-Scope is an authentic laboratory-grade scientific tool that will accompany the user all through their high-school education.
How do i know how much magnification i need?
The amount of magnification needed depends on your intended application, the specimen type. See the chart below: A.1 - 10x to 40x is the ideal magnification range for viewing Insects, jewelry, keys, and even small toys. A.2 - At 40x to 100x magnification, cells and organ tissue are now visible, as well as some smaller solid items. A.3 - 100x to 400x magnification is the most frequently used magnification range for general laboratory applications and offers higher definition images of blood cells and organ tissue and nerves.
