If you are looking for a stereo microscope that you can use at home or in the classroom to inspect biological specimens and other objects that require handing or manipulation, then the AmScope SE306R-PZ Forward Binocular Stereo Microscope can be your best option.

 

Features

 

This binocular pillar-stand stereo microscope from AmScope, with a sturdy all-metal framework, provides 3 (20X, 40X and 80X) magnification powers and comes with a versatile illumination system that allows for transmitted (bottom) illumination through the frosted stage plate and incident (top) lighting that shines down onto the object. With its high quality widefield optical glass lenses, this microscope provides sharp and clear stereo images, with good depth and high resolution, within a broad field of view. It also uses a 45-degree inclined and forward widefield binocular head that ensures you will have an easy observation, not to mention that it has rubber eye-guards provide further comfort.

 

Pros

 

The AmScope SE306R-PZ Forward Binocular Stereo Microscope is constructed with good-quality materials, providing a feeling that it is built to last. As it has an objective that can be switched from 2X to 4X, it is more convenient to use than those having a fixed objective and more eyepieces. You see, it comes with 10X and 20X eyepieces, eye covers, 2 extra bulbs, ocular cover and an interchangeable base plate disc, which make it very easy to use. It performs excellently that using its 10X eyepieces would be sufficient in many microscopy tasks you would do, no longer needing to use the 20X eyepieces.

 

Cons

 

The optics used in this microscope’s 20X eyepieces can be dark, which means that you might need to look at the perfect angle or distance to see a full field of view, though details are still there. Also, optics can get very bright for you, where it can be foggy or distorted. It lacks a light dimmer, and when a frosted glass gets wet, the disc would become clear and the light would be blinding. Moreover, there is no camera mount on this microscope, unless you attach one through its eyepiece slot.

 

Final Thoughts

 

Considering its features, the AmScope SE306R-PZ is a great instrument for an array of applications, where it can be used in biology, forestry, geology, archaeology and agriculture. It could be perfect for educational purposes in schools and hospitals, as well as for exploring of the world of the fine structures and surface details of various materials. And of course, it is suitable for examining plants, insects, microelectronic components or virtually any 3D objects.

 

Other than this, this instrument can be a perfect option for your children who are curious about science, letting them explore in a way that it is enjoyable. All in all, the AmScope SE306R-PZ Forward Binocular Stereo Microscope is a recommended instrument for studying, satisfying your hobby or use of your little scientists at home.
