This year, treat your young scientist to the Omano OM136C monocular microscope with a choice of 4 useful Accessory gift packs. The Omano OM136C monocular compound microscope is one of our best-selling school microscopes and more than merits our Best Rated award. With better design and construction than the OM118 series, it is a microscope that will last a lifetime and accordingly, carries an Omano lifetime limited warranty.

Features include professional halogen or rechargeable LED illumination, three fully coated achromatic objective lenses (an an optional 100x objective at a 44% discount when purchased with the microscope), Abbe 1.25 N.A condenser with iris diaphragm and an optional mechanical slide holder which we recommend for more convenient slide handling. Recommended for Grades 5-12.


The Omano OM136C-L includes a monocular microscope head that is inclined at an ergonomic 45 degrees. The head rotates through 360 degrees for flexible viewing. A single wide field WF 10x eyepiece combines with three parcentered, coated, 160mm achromatic objective lenses (4x, 10x, 40x Spring), to provide magnification levels of 40x, 100x and 400x.

The objectives are set in a quadruple nosepiece so that an optional 100x oil immersion objective can be added for maximum magnification of 1,000x. Includes Dust Cover, Manual. Save over 40% when you purchase the optional 100x objective with the microscope.

Stage & Focus

The OM136CL includes a generous sized, plain stage (125mm x 110mm) with two metal slide clips. An optional mechanical slide holder is available at a 44% discount when purchased at the same time as the microscope. We recommend this slide holder as it makes slide handling significantly easier for both younger children and teenagers alike.

Focusing includes high quality rack and pinion mechanics for longer life and coaxial focus controls for easier focusing. We recommend coaxial coarse/fine focus controls since they enable 'eyes down' focusing. In other words, the viewer does not constantly need to look up in order to find the other focus control. This benefit is important in enhancing a student's experience and therefore in encouraging a more sustained interest in the microscope.

Safety features include a rack stop to ensure that the stage does not impact with the objectives and thereby break the slides and a slip clutch control to mitigate the risk of damaging the focus controls through over extension.


Condenser & Illumination

The condenser is a professional Abbe 1.25 N.A with included iris diaphragm and filter holder for optimal adjustments. Illumination is 6V 20W transmitted halogen or rechargeable LED, both with variable light intensity. The LED version requires one 30 minute charge to last all day long and is a popular microscope for use in the field.

Shipping Wt. and dimensions: 12 Lb. 20"x13"x10".

Accessory Packs

In addition to the standard accessories, you can choose from 4 accessory packs below. Each pack includes a range of useful accessories that you will need in order to enjoy your microscope.

Omano OM136C

Book: Usborne's, The World of the Microscope
The book is, in our opinion, a wonderful and colorful introduction to microscopy. Practical, clearly worded and with dozens of illustrations, it provides numerous experiments and activities that range from simple to more complex. While many assume the book is aimed at children, we have found it to be an useful primer for both young and old alike. We highly recommend it.

All are professional-grade, prepared slides designed to stimulate the imagination of children - and adults alike! Beastly Bits set will be included unless sold out, when either Blood & Gore or Neat Eats will be substituted.
