New Microscope System Leica DM4000 B LED for Biomedical Routine & Research Applications
Product News May 28, 2012
Leica Microsystems launches the new Leica DM4000 B LED - a microscope system with innovative LED illumination optimally suited for biomedical applications.
The specially designed LED transmitted light illumination solution is perfectly integrated in the microscope automation covering a wide range of microscopy applications.
LED illumination produces constant color temperature at all intensity levels without heat buildup and thus enables stable results.
High luminance and optimal color reproduction provide brilliant images with a clear differentiation of the colors in the sample.
With at least 50.000 hours lifetime, the LED illumination is very cost effective; frequent bulb changes are no longer necessary.
Advantages for biomedical research
Thanks to intelligent automation the Leica DM4000 B LED sets parameters for transmitted light and fluorescence illumination according to user’s selection of contrast method and magnification.
Most recently used settings are stored and recalled automatically - saving time and allowing the user to focus on the application and not technology.
The fully automated fluorescence axis with apochromatic light path provides brilliant images with stunning contrast. Intelligent automation also means: high-quality, publication ready images and maximum reproducability for reliable data analysis.
Ideal for clinical applications
The Leica DM4000 B LED is well suited for clinical applications, e.g. pathology applications with H&E or IHC stained slides. Its special transmitted light modes may be adjusted according to applications and user’s preferences. Repetitive movements are reduced thanks to the intelligent automation along with the ergonomic design.
Integrated system solution
Leica Microsystems offers a complete imaging system from one source: With Leica’s extensive line of color and fluorescence cameras there is a solution for different requirements like high resolution and quick live image.
The Leica Application Suite software package fully integrates the Leica DM4000 B LED microscope and digital camera into an optimized system for visualization, storage and documentation of microscope images.
The Leica AF6000 advanced fluorescence imaging systems featuring LAS AF software are ideal for very fast, multidimensional fluorescence scans and processing, including live cell time-lapse experiments, multi-positioning and deconvolution.
