Microscopy courses are most enjoyable when both teachers and students can focus on their subject. Our educational microscopes help you to unlock your students’ full potential: They are practical, easy to handle, and provide images that will hold your students’ attention.
Delight young minds!
These plug-and-play microscopes are used in classrooms around the world. In life science subjects such as biology, histology, zoology, or anatomy as well as in earth sciences, materials sciences, or forensics education, they feed enquiring minds of beginners, explorers, and experts alike.
- They are easy to use – parts are well labeled, components cannot be removed and lost, and few adjustments lead to great results
- They produce images to enjoy – their optics and cameras deliver good contrast, color, and resolution for a great learning experience
- They are easy to store – they are small, easy to carry, and have few cables that could tangle
- They are easy to maintain – they are easy to clean and service, with on-site service when needed
- They are constructed to last – they stand up to rough handling and varying environmental conditions
And if you would like to digitize your classroom and engage your students via Wi-Fi with tools they even use in their leisure time, we offer wireless classroom solutions.
The matrix will help you determine which of our instruments would be eligible for your classroom.

Using camera and software, students can work with their images beyond the microscope:
- Extracted images from the microscope
- Make images available for analysis and measurements, documentation for reports
- Share images
Essentially, working with a microscope equipped with camera and software is fun for students, because they can use and share their own images.
Last, but not least, fun is a great assistant to teachers!
