Product Details

The RoachScope is made to be taken on the go and fits easily in a toolbox or backpack. Open Source, feel free to hack away at it and improve it! It is perfect for viewing and documenting your electrophysiology preps, your sample slides, inspecting geological samples, and finding part numbers on small electrical components. On one side of the microscope is the high power (100x mode) and on the other side of the microscope is the low power (10x) mode. Bright white LEDs are built into the design.
