Bright microscope Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS Lime - for those curious about the world around them. Once really boring, biology classes will turn into an exciting adventure – with Levenhuk Rainbow 2L PLUS Lime Microscope children will be able to see the wonders of the Microcosm with their own eyes! Its quality optics make the microscope a perfect choice for a biology student or even a laboratory technician.

Excellent optics
The optics are made of a special glass – it is highly transparent and does not distort the image. The lenses are coated with multiple layers of a special coating that increases light transmission level, making produced images brighter and more detailed.
The microscope is equipped with three objective lenses: 4x, 10x, and 40xs. The most powerful objective lens has a special spring mechanism that protects the optics from mechanical damage. If a user lowers the objective too far, it will spring back and won’t break the slide or ruin the objective lens.

Ability to observe both transparent and opaque objects
Thanks to the combined illumination, the microscope can be used for studying both transparent and opaque objects. Lower lighting is used for liquids with microorganisms, thin sections of plants and other transparent samples. Upper lighting allows for observations of opaque objects – paper, cloth, metal, etc. To observe a semi-transparent object, you should use both upper and lower lighting at once. Adjustable brightness allows choosing the optimal level of light for each specimen.

The reliable metal body of the microscope allows for its frequent use. The 45-degrees inclined monocular head allows for the most convenient viewing position. You can rotate the head 360 degrees around its axes - that is especially convenient when it is used by multiple people at once.
The microscope can be powered by an outlet or batteries, so you can also use it outdoors.

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.

Conducting experiments
Beginning explorers will like the Levenhuk K50 Experiment Kit (comes in the kit). The kit contains ready-to-use microscope slides, and all necessary tools for preparing your own specimens. Besides, the kit includes a very helpful user guide with all necessary information about the microscope’s design, recommendations for its use, and experiment descriptions.
