AmScope M100C-LED 40x-1000x All-Metal Student Cordless LED Field Biological Compound Microscope with All Optical Glass Lenses
AmScope M100C-LED is the most cost effective yet high quality biological microscope for young scientists and scientific enthusiastic age eight and up. It is ideal for viewing cell tissues, bacteria, and fungi in both self-prepared slides and pre-made-slides, such as onion cells, leaf cells, cheese bacteria, etc. It makes the microscopic world within the reach to everyone.
Built to Last
AmScope M100C-LED comes with all glass optical elements and solid metal body. The microscope provides sharp clear images and will last long enough to cover all the way from elementary to high school. The sturdy metal construct offers stable images at high magnification levels instead of shaking ones. The build-in battery slot uses three AA batteries to power the microscope on-the-go, and an 110V-4.5V transformer can be plugged in when using indoor setting.
AmScope M100C-LED features five levels of magnification settings that produce crystal clear image without any frustrations. Glass achromatic objectives minimizes aberration and last longer.
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. AmScope has been manufacturing microscopy equipment and accessories since 1996, headquartering in Irvine, CA.

This video was taken by holding a video camera up to the eyepiece of our AmScope model M100C-LED, so the actual view using your eye isn't so tunneled. We set the louse on top of a prepared slide, which is the pink material in the first part of the video. It was on its back, so you can see it moving its legs. The first nine seconds of this video is at 40x, and the rest is at 100x. We looked at the louse at 400x also, but I couldn't get decent video at that magnification. If you really want photo or videos, consider a different microscope with a built-in camera.
This was a neat, educational, and gross way to show my daughter what was actually crawling around on her head. We also looked at nits and at another louse where you could see the blood inside its body at 100x and 250x, but we didn't take video of that.
No complaints with the microscope at all; it's solidly built and of good quality all around. I expect it to last for many years of use.
The scope came with a transformer and 2 WF view finders though I have not yet figured out how to install the second. It is different from the one that came installed. One person reported their scope came badly packed. Not mine. The instrument came in a thick, fitted Styrofoam box, inside of a cardboard box that was packed in yet another box along with the additional prepared slides I'd purchased in a padded container with the extra spaces filled with large bubble packs. It arrived in fine condition and everything tight.
Harking back to not knowing how to install that second view finder, the "instructions" (I can hardly call them that) are something less than useless as another reviewer reported. That is why I only gave 4 stars to this. Consider the instrument itself 5/star. But, if I used a microscope in school, and I most likely did, it was so long ago I cannot recall it. Therefor the lack of instructions are a bit aggravating. I decided against forking out the money for a book about it figuring (rightly it turns out) there's plenty of free information available on the web. But, purchasers of this scope should be prepared to do one or the other.
A final word. In doing the web research, I discovered that magnification for the 1000x might want immersion oil but to beware that it is not for all lenses and there's nought to tell you yea or nay on this scope. There's a toll free number on the paperwork so I called it. I am happy to report there were no recordings and a gen-u-ine live hu-man being actually answered the phone.(8^o I quickly got my answer, it's fine to use the oil if necessary. So +1 for customer service.
That wraps this up. I tried to make it useful rather than just glib praise or complaint. I hope it's of use to someone out there.
There is no fine control knob. This can make focusing at high magnifications tricky. Use very small increments, and focus at lower magnifications first.
There is no explanation for the use of the condenser aperture (The rotating plastic disk with the various sized holes in it attached to the underside of the stage) in the instructions.
The eyepiece is easily replaced with the aid of a 2mm #0 Phillips head screwdriver. I got mine at Radio Shack. There is a small brass set screw on the barrel of the microscope that holds the eyepiece in place. Back the screw out until the eyepiece comes free when swapping the 10X and 25X eyepieces. Combined with the 4X, 10X and 40X objectives that gives 40X-100X-250X-400X-1000X magnification steps. I will have to double check, but believe these are standard DIN objectives.
All in all a solid piece of equipment for a VERY reasonable price.
There are two knobs, but they move together. In science class, I had one coarse zoom and one fine. This microscope has no fine zoom.
Not quite as clear as higher-end microscopes. Still quite clear.
It's a pain to switch between the 10x and 25x eyepieces.
This is my first tabletop (as opposed to pocket) microscope, and I'm actually very please. I've looked at tiny things swimming in pond scum, cells, louse eggs, sperm, salt, sugar. If you don't have a microscope, and you're interested in the tiny world around you, this is a great price. I don't regret my purchase at all, and am excited to look at more things tomorrow.
