The OM185 is a monocular dissection microscope designed for elementary school students and hobbyists who require a solid microscope for use in the field. It includes 20x fixed magnification in a simple design that uses ambient light and that is built to withstand the rigors of little hands and elbows. The OM185 is a sturdy microscope with all-metal construction. The microscope head rotates 360° so larger specimens can be viewed off-stage. A slip clutch on the rack and pinion focusing prevents damage from over enthusiastic focusing while a locked eyepiece reduces the risk of loss.
The microscope employs ambient light so is ideal for use outdoors or inside with the aid of artificial light. This type of microscope is recommended by the Microscopy Society of America, PROJECT MICRO as a cost effective microscope for elementary schools and students. Ask about our volume discount!
