LED Microscopes for Biology

£3,100

“A new class set of microscopes would provide standardisation across our laboratories, enabling all

boys to have access to the best equipment. The units themselves provide excellent clarity of image

and the LED light source is both energy efficient and allows the units to be charged, removing the need

for trailing electrical wires. Their use is a tremendously helpful part of GCSE Biology, since cell structure

is very important and at A level, detailed microscope work forms a component of the exam in which students must prepare a slide and draw what they see. The addition of the units to the Biology Department would therefore be hugely beneficial.”
