Don't let their small size fool you, these are precision made hand crafted inspection tools! Some times called "pocket microscopes" they are also referred to as "microscope pens" or "pen microscopes". This fine optical instrument is heavy duty and will for years.

Each of these precision crafted microscopes provide high resolving power and a surprising amount of brightness in the final image. The PEAK pocket microscope is used whenever someone is confronted with the need to see something "better" than they could otherwise see with the unaided (or naked) eye. It comes with a pen clip to conveniently "clip" right onto a shirt pocket, just as you would a ball point pen!

To focus the microscope, hold it so that the notch at the tip of the acrylic cylinder faces toward the user. While tilting back and forth on the tip, with your eye looking through the eye piece, you can fix the adjustable cylinder until all is in focus to give the sharpest image. The microscope comes in four different magnifications. Many of our customers purchase more than one, with different magnifications.

Regular vs. Long Styles:

In the 15x models only, a special "long" style is available as well. Product designation is PEAK 2001-15L.

Inverted vs. Erect Images:

The Peak 2001 Series of pocket microscopes all have an inverted image. For those who are looking for an erect (normal) image we offer the 2056 Pocket Microscope. These have the same construction and performance of the inverted pocket microscopes, although they are slightly heavier in weight. 25X and 50X magnification available.

Materials of construction:

Glass lens housed in both clear and black shock resistant plastic. We won't guarantee that if dropped, it won't break, but we ourselves have experienced our share of dropped scopes and almost always, the pocket microscope survives. The greatest risk to this family of microscopes, is that colleagues tend to "borrow" them and then conveniently forget to return them.

Some typical applications:

Spare and replacement parts:

These Pocket microscopes do not have a scale.
