The Ken-A-Vision T-VisionScope 2 binocular stereo microscope has upper and lower LED lighting with dimmer and on/off switch, and two eyepieces to create three-dimensional images for the inspection of large specimens and objects. The binocular head has a fixed 30-degree incline and variable width eyepieces for comfortable viewing, and a choice of total magnification up to 80x. Separate coaxial knobs for coarse and fine focus and rack-and-pinion gearing provide sharp focus. The stage has clips to hold the slide in place and black, white, and frosted stage plates for a range of viewing options. The built-in cool white LED light has a dimmer and on/off switch for a range of lighting options. The single-cast aluminum body has a built-in, carrying handle for strength and durability. The microscope includes a cover, power supply with multiple plug clips, and instructions.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.
Ken-A-Vision Manufacturing, founded in 1957 and headquartered in Kansas City, MO, manufactures educational products such as microscopes, cameras, and software.
