The SIGETA MB-113 (40x-400x) represents a classical school microscope equipped with double LED illumination and high-quality glass optics. With a 10x eyepiece kit and three 4x, 10x and 40x lens objectives, an increase of 40x, 100x or 400x is generated.
This microscope can be operated with no need to be close to an electrical socket: the LEDs are charged with normal AA batteries and are economical in use. The instrument can be operated in the open field or on a school desk, which usually lacks the illumination to absorb light from a mirror and does not have a 220V socket.
The illumination system of the SIGETA MB-113 microscope is regulated by a three-position switch located on the back panel of the instrument. Both upper and lower lamps can be alternately switched on (positions I and II) or both can be switched off (0). Lower illuminator is used for examining biological samples through the light, upper illuminator is used for examining non-transparent specimens at low magnification. Flat specimens used for examination are arranged on a non-slip stage and clamped to the stage table top with spring clips.
WARNING Sharp objects such as awls, thin glassware, etc. are present in the kit. Children under the age of 8 are only permitted to use the tool in the presence of an adult!

The SIGETA MB-113 kit in particular is designed to interest your child with the structure of micro-objects and to encourage individual examination of the plant and animal worlds.
