Leica DM1000 LED Microscope

The Leica DM1000 LED is equipped with long-life LED illumination, which features the following advantages: akin to daylight and bright illumination, less heat emission, as well as no need for lamp changes. Leica Microsystems also offers a portable, solar-powered option for field use. Battery operation is also possible and allows flexible utilization at different places of work. Users of the Leica DM1000 LED benefit from the same ergonomic, performance-enhancing advantages as the Leica DM1000. It is ideal for all clinical laboratory applications, especially for cytology, pathology, and haematology.

Key Features

* Long-life LED illumination (approximately 100,000 hours)
* Height adjustable focus knobs (Patented: DE 103 40 721)
* REAL symmetrical operation of stage and focus controls for symmetrical (not-distorted position) of the user in front of the microscope
* Easy one hand operation of the focus and stage control
* Standard tube with ergonomic 15° viewing angle
* Color coded aperture diaphragm
* Easy right hand/left hand conversion (or elimination) of x/y control
* Stage with ultra hard ceramic surface
* New HI Plan objectives with special 10x CY objective for clinical applications (with excellent flatness and long working distance for easy markings)
* Series of brightness synchronized objectives
* Pathology oriented imaging software

Bulb Replacement Is History
The LEDs have an extremely long service life of approximately 100,000 hours. Assuming six hours of use per day, the bulb's service life is 50 years. This saves laboratories both time and money.

The Leica DM1000 LED features a 4 W LED bulb. Because of its low power consumption, the system is energy efficient.

Comfortable, Pleasant Light
LED illumination provides a cool color impression. The light contains a relatively high blue cast, which closely approximates daylight. The color temperature also remains constant at different illumination intensities and is easy on the eyes.

Leica offers an optional, portable power supply for the new Leica DM1000 LED. When using the microscope for field-based applications, the flexible solar panel delivers power to the rechargeable battery, which is integrated with the stand. The microscope can then be used for approximately eight hours on a fully charged battery.
