A high-quality instrument purpose-built for heavy classroom use. Anti-tamper safety features include locked-on eyepiece and stage clips, slip-clutch on the focusing movement to prevent over-focusing and focus-stop to prevent damage to glass slides and objective lenses. This model is provided with coarse focusing only and is particularly suited for Middle/Lower Secondary School use.
What we also particularly like about the Zenith P3 A Microscope from Zenith is that it achieves a very good trade-off between quality and price. The magnification of 400x may seem low in comparison to quoted magnifications of less serious "toy" Microscopes, however, you can be sure that the P 3A uses optics that are superior in quality. The result is that the Zenith P 3A provides particularly clear and bright images that reveal more than other Microscopes quoting higher magnifications, which commonly suffer from poor-quality, low-detailed and dull images with such a narrow field of view that proper observation is impossible. The Zenith P3 A Student Microscope enables students and children to discover a wealth of hidden secrets, without costing the earth! And, we have to admit, the remarkable quality of the images makes this microscope stand out from other Microscopes in this price range.
