Cat. No. 11079SMS Smartphone Microscope Bead Sample Pack
For those of you working on a smartphone microscope as described by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory we now have a bead sample pack available for you.
Each pack comes with a sample our 0.5, 1.0, and 3.5 mm glass beads. Each sample contains a smaller amount of beads than our standard one pound bottles. However there more than enough beads to create almost 150 scopes using the 3.5 mm beads and a few thousand with each of the two smaller sizes.
Select catalog number 11079SMS for the Smartphone Microscope Sample Bead Pack.
Please note that our beads are a grinding grade and not precision grade of bead. As they are not precision beads, there will be slight clarity and size irregularities. As there are several hundred to several thousand beads of each size in the package, you will have many to select from.
