    Hi I was wondering if anyone does fecals themselves and if so what microscope do you use. I wanted to see what everyone uses before I buy one.

    I bought a used AmScope M100C-LED with an Omax eyepiece camera. It works great.

    Same as @MadHouse . I really like it. I recommend purchasing fecal flotation solution until you get comfortable.

    It seems like most work well as long as they have 4x, 10x, and 40x magnification. AmScope is a good brand.

    Why do I have so much trouble using the 40x? It’s like nothing is under the scope. I can’t get it regulated at all.

    Here's the one I have. I used it when I was teaching biology. It's very functional and you can do a lot with it. The quality is also amazing.

    I also recommend the website in general for supplies and they have great customer service.
    They also have videos to teach folks how to use their equipment and do different experiments for homeschooling.

    Do you mean you can't get it in focus?
