THE Student Microscope. A Microscope for Education.

A student micrA student microscope, used at universities, medical schools and schools in general.

A student microscope, used at universities, medical schools and schools in general, must satisfy specific requirements.

For you, the teacher or instructor, it is important to have a set of high-quality, yet favorably-priced microscopes enabling you to successfully teach your students or trainees all major contrasting methods, i.e. brightfield, darkfield and phase contrast.

You know the loads a microscope used in training has to withstand, what with extensive use and rough handling. That is why you attach great importance to the quality of the stand, the performance of the optics, and ease of operation. For a student microscope it is essential to be particularly robust, durable and safe against overturning. When we designed Primo Star, therefore, we made it a prime concern to use the proper materials. The stand consists mostly of metal. Putting your student microscopes back into cabinets at the end of a course is easy for you and your students: Primo Star comes with an integrated, plastic-lined handle, which affords safe carrying. This shows that design and functionality can go hand in hand. Another case in point: the widely visible LED pilot lights on the stand. From the number of LEDs that are on, you can see from a distance whether your students use the right light intensity.

A student microscope is used by many different people. The Primo Star's Siedentopf tube allows every student to adapt the viewing height to the height of their bodies, and the eyepieces to their interocular distance.

As you want to teach various contrasting methods diverse applications, it is important for the microscope to provide a variety of illuminations. With Primo Star, your students can choose between 30W halogen light, LED illumination providing stable color temperature, and a tilting mirror for powerless (outdoor) use.

You expect quality, not less from a student microscope.

As another matter of course, you want a facility for your students to document their successful observations. Therefore, Primo Star can be had with camera adapters for selected digital cameras, and the AxioVision LE software.

You expect quality, not less from a student microscope.
