Field Microscope Model M3-B
The M3 series combines 3 microscopes in one! The M3 allows you to view both microscopic
specimens, by using the compound objectives (4X, 10X, and 40X), and macroscopic specimens, by
using the 1X macro objective. It is cordless, using energy efficient, rechargeable LED illumination,
and compact so it is ideal for both classroom and field work applications. Through the unique
configuration of objectives, the M3 achieves a magnification range of 10X-400X. Switching from
compound to macro use is easy to accomplish by changing the objectives and adjusting the stage
positions. All metal construction makes it durable for use in any environment. The unique tripod
base keeps it sturdy even on rugged outdoor surfaces.
