The Eclipse Ei is an educational microscope. It was developed to reduce the burden on teachers who must educate beginner users on microscope operation, and to eliminate issues associated with the moving, setup and storage of microscopes. We did this with intuitive graphic indicators and an online guide, a lightweight body that is easy to hold and carry, and a design that provides clean, organized storage for accessories. Use of this innovative microscope that makes teaching, learning, and handling easy reduces educational burden on teachers, and increases productivity for students with more essential time for learning sciences and medicine.
