Even if you observe hair with raised magnification, I think that it is difficult to understand until cuticle.
(Only black foreign matter will simply become bigger.)
Observation with ring lighting
If it is a high magnification type with coaxial illumination, it will be slightly easy to see.
Furthermore, it is necessary to increase the resolution of the lens.
Super high magnification microscope SH140CCD-2R set price about 400,000 yen
Although it is a general-purpose price, those with low lens resolution (coaxial lighting)
Ultrahigh magnification high resolution CCD USB microscope USH140CCD-H1
Extremely high magnification microscope (coaxial lighting) set with high lens resolution
Metal microscope GR 3400 21 ten thousand yen.
There is a metallurgical microscope as a microscope of coaxial illumination.
Although it is not the original usage, you can see the cuticle clearly.
If you observe only the cuticle, I think that the most cost performance is high.

Metallic microscope + camera for microscope (140 CCD camera) 400 times
■Ultra high magnification microscope (USH 140 CCD – H 1) 800 times
■ Simple coaxial microscope
Building a simple microscope with a combination of existing parts
Observation of cuticle at low price is possible.
However, the resolution of the lens will be reduced.
The tip can be exchanged with a microscope objective lens.
