The PEAK Pocket Microscope EIM represent the ultimate in "pocket
microscopes". Its design is small, light and compact. The major advantage is the
image is "erect" or in other words, not inverted. The erect image is
made possible with small prisms built right into the
compact body of the microscope. The presence of the non-inverted image is
highly valuable in terms of interpreting images since it enables the viewer
to easily compare what is seen through the microscope vs. what is seen with
the unaided eye.
Each of these precision crafted microscopes provide high resolving power and
a surprising amount of brightness in the final image. The PEAK pocket
microscopes EIM are used whenever someone is confronted with the need to see
something "better" than they could otherwise see with the unaided (or naked)
eye. And it comes with a pen clip to conveniently "clip" right onto a shirt
pocket, just as you would a ball point pen!
We would recommend this style pocket microscope whenever the surfac texture
and morphology being studied is complicated and one does not need the
further confusion of an inverted image microscope.
The microscope style comes in four different magnifications. Many of our
customers purchase more than one, with different magnifications, for
Glass lens housed in both clear and black shock resistant plastic. We won't
guarantee that if dropped, it won't break, but we have experienced
our share of dropped scopes and almost always, the pocket microscope survives.
