Student Microscope with 24 Prepared Slides

The Richter Optica MDS2 is a middle school student microscope with both coarse and fine focusing. This microscope has student-proofed features such as a retractable 40x objective lens. The microscope package includes a 24-pack of prepared slides that are ready to view. This is the perfect gift for curious kids.


  • Prepared Slides: The included prepared slide kit includes six slides, each with 4 samples that cover the following categories: root & stem, leaf & epidermis, pollen & starch, wing & leg, tiny creatures, and hair & fiber. Each slide is made of flexible cardboard that is safe for even smaller children since there is no glass that could harm them if a slide was broken.
