DESCRIPTION:

Shown on this page is the Plastic model of the McArthur microscope made for the Eritrean Public Health Program in 1983. It is essentially a plastic version of the most recent version of the Metal McArthur Microscope. It is of higher quality than the Open University Models and a bit easier to use. It measures 101 x 50 x 62 mm. It is signed as Designed by Dr John McArthur; it is unclear who made it.
