My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope


This innovative My First Lab Duo-Scope microscope allows you to view both highly-magnified transparent microscope slides and solid objects. The key to this dual-viewing functionality is an LED illumination system that can either provide bottom lighting for slides or top lighting for solid specimens. The result is hours of discovery and fun for your kids.

Don't confuse this little microscope with a toy: it features all-glass optics and a metal frame, making it durable and very usable. It sits 12" tall, which is the ideal size for kids while still providing a big enough field of view. The bright LED light is powered by three AA batteries, making it a take-anywhere scope indoors or out. A 2-way switch allows you to use either the bottom light or top light. A 6-hole disc diaphragm provides lighting and contrast control when using microscope slides. The three objective lenses and 10x widefield eyepiece provide total microscope magnification levels of 40, 100, and 400x. The large coarse focusing knob is fast and easy to use at 40x and 100x magnification but requires more care at 400x magnification.

This Duo-Scope comes with an accessory kit for hours of discovery (see details below), a dust cover, and complete operating instructions. C&A Scientific My First Lab Model MFL-06 with a one-year warranty. Adult supervision (the accessory kit contains glass and sharp instruments).

This microscope is not suitable for high school use due to the coarse focusing limitations at 400x magnification.

Great First Microscope Review by
Very nice microscope for the price. When we gave it to the kids, we were camping for the weekend. We looked at bugs, rocks, tree bark - anything and everything. The detail this microscope gives is amazing. I'm hoping it will give these children a desire to study and be amazed by the things and intracasies of our world. It's a great microscope, a must have for learning.
Great quality microscope for outstanding price! Review by
I was looking for a relatively cheap beginners microscope and found this great tool. I would recommend getting the Microscope Slide-Making Kit with it, but it is a terrific product by itself.
Great for Kids Review by
My daughter is home schooling. I got this for the kids science study. They were so excited to look at things under the microscope. The excitement on there faces was truley worth the purchase not to mention the experience for them.
Nearly Perfect! Review by
I bought this microscope 5 years ago and it has worked perfectly! I have been surprised at how well it works. We never had to replace the bulb or anything, just batteries. It says it is not suitable for high school, but we used it for all grades including high school sciences. I highly recommend it!
