Leica Unveils Microscopy Systems for Daily Routine Tasks
Product News Nov 14, 2006
Leica Microsystems has offered a wide range of microscopes and stereomicroscopes to cover the most diverse applications of microscopic analysis methods in routine and research.
Two examples are the Leica DM1000 and the Leica DM3000. Apart from optical quality, these Leica microscopes offer ergonomics and can be adapted to the body shape of every single user.
Individually adjustable tubes or tubes with an ergonomic viewing angle of 15° enable the user to sit up straight.
Even during long sessions at the microscope, neck, shoulder and back strain can be avoided by adaptable 30mm and 60mm ergomodules.
The symmetric arrangement of the stage drive and the focus controls along a single line reduces strain on the shoulders and spine. Patented heightadjustable focus knobs adapt to any hand size.
Company claims that, with the help of color-coded aperture diaphragms on the condenser, users can recognize at once which diaphragm setting is the best for the selected objective.
Another innovation from the Leica Microsystems company: The fluorescence stereomicroscope Leica MZ10 F.
It is designed for all routine fluorescence techniques in the biotechnology lab. The magnification from 8x to 80x, high resolution of 375 Lp/mm, 10:1 zoom, numerical aperture of 0.125, and separate TripleBeamTM fluorescence illumination ensure magnificent detail and elimination of reflections.
Company claims that, the Leica MZ10 F is the ideal addition to the research fluorescence stereomicroscopes Leica MZ16 F und Leica MZ16 A.
