Have you ever been out somewhere, and seen something on the floor, or maybe stuck to the back of your friend Cornelius' coat, and thought, Ugh! What IS that? Welp, carry this little LED microscope around in your pocket, and from now on you'll be able to figure it out. Or at least get a 20x to 40x closer view to check it out.
Carson Optical's MM-24 MicroBrite is a cheap and easy to use tool for hobbyists, as well as a cheap and easy way to introduce your kids to the joys of science. And by that I mean they probably won't give two treated slides about the science, but will dig getting way up close and personal with their scabs, blood, dead bugs, and the glowing end of a firefly.
The MicroBrite is designed for use on the move with our without specimen slides thanks to its removable base. Without slides, just set the device directly over your intended subject and enjoy the show.
The microscope measures 1.125" wide x 3.875" tall x 2.125" deep, and weighs 2 ounces. It comes with the base, 2 specimen slides, and the 3 x LR-44 button cell batteries that power the LED light.
