Leica Microsystems has launched the Leica DM4000 B LED – a microscope system with LED illumination optimally suited for biomedical applications.
The LED transmitted light illumination solution is 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.
Automation allows Leica DM4000 B LED users to set parameters for transmitted light and fluorescence illumination according to 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.
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 automation and ergonomic design.
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.
