This special offer introduces our recently-upgraded Omano OM117L-X monocular student microscope with coarse-fine focus controls which make it easier than ever for students to see clear, sharp images. The OM117L-X also features the popular and easy-to-use accessory kit, making for an affordable and versatile microscopy lab, ideal for the home school or classroom setting. Similar to the My First Lab Duoscope, the Omano OM117L-X is a newer, larger and more modern version that also operates as two microscopes in one. Primarily designed as a high power microscope for viewing microscope slides, it can also function with the top light as a monocular dissecting microscope for viewing larger, solid specimens such as insects, coins and and plant life.


With all-glass optics and variable-intensity cool LED illumination, it offers all the magnification required for Elementary and Middle School students. A wide field WF10x eyepiece combines with three achromatic objective lenses, 4x, 10x and 40x to provide magnification of 40x, 100x and 400x. An eyepiece lock nut can be tightened to minimize the risk of loss and the head rotates through 360 degrees as required.

Stage & Focus

A plain, flat top stage offers two slide clips to secure specimen slides. Rack and pinion focus includes coaxial coarse/fine controls that are dual-sided for convenience and sized for smaller hands. There is a rack stop and slip clutch to prevent inadvertent damage.

Condenser & Illumination

There is a six-position pinhole aperture for illumination control and the resolution (fine details) provided is excellent. A filter holder is provided for optimal adjustments. Upper and lower LED llumination is provided by 3 AA batteries with variable light intensity. The LED system ensures a long battery life, making it ideal for those extended field trips.

Accessory Kit

Also included is an array of useful microscope accessories to get your young microscopist started. Blank slides and cover slips, slide stains, tools and cleaning accessories. The full list includes: 5 blank slides, 5 prepared slides, 10 cover slips, microtome, red dye stain, blue dye stain, test tube, lens paper, 2 specimen sticks, plastic pipette, tweezers, petri dish, 5 slide labels, dust cover, manual.

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.
