Leica releases first inverted routine microscope with LED light source

9 November 2008

Leica has released a new microscope, the DM IL LED, the first inverted routine microscope to combine high quality Leica HC optics with state-of-the-art LED illumination.

The low-maintenance light source with no heat build-up, the long free working distances and generous space for operation and the system’s high stability, create ideal conditions for microscopy with live samples. The Leica DM IL LED and the fluorescence variant Leica DM IL FLUO are versatile and can be individually configured with a wide range of optics and accessories — advantages that are unique in this class of microscope.

The Leica DM IL LED is suitable for a wide variety of cell and tissue culture examinations in biology and medicine, for studies in development biology or micromanipulation all the way up to live cell experiments in transgenics or electrophysiology.

The Leica DM IL FLUO variant offers versatile application potential for fluorescence applications such as GFP labeling and can also be supplied with LED fluorescence illumination on request. Featuring an energy-saving automatic shutoff, the compact illumination unit integrates a pre-centered LED with a lifetime of 50,000 hours — which needs the light will not need to be changed.
