The Leica DM2500 - Blazing new trails in industry

Simple and reliable: The microscope for material analysis

The Leica DM2500 M allows you to improve your workflow and concentrate entirely on the task at hand. Microscope operation becomes secondary to your investigations. Viewing your material examinations in the best light is our top priority. Equally important is our commitment to always offer you the best quality optics and most efficient microscope systems in the business. You need a materials microscope system designed for rapid, accurate results. Leica microscope systems are designed to decrease your bench time and provide optimized results. The Leica DM2500 M will show you how simple and reliable microscopy can be.

* 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
* Easy right hand/left hand conversion (or elimination) of x/y control

Brilliance you can afford
A wide selection of the most varied objectives – all of them tried and tested in research microscopy – also guarantees astounding imaging quality for materials microscopy. The HI Plan EPI objectives, are both innovative and cost-effective. They combine brilliance and sharp contrast with first-class resolution and an optimized image field.
Your work demands large working distances with simultaneous high resolution. You will be amazed by the performance of the N PLAN (achromatic) and Plan Fluotar (semi-apochromatic) series of objectives. They deliver unvarying high image sharpness with all contrast methods. Image field sizes, from 20 to 22 and all the way to 25 mm if you prefer, allow you to see exactly what you want to see. Wide image fields reduce the time needed to scan your specimens and determine structures of interest. Images are always high-contrast, pin sharp and full of detail.

Concentrate on your work, not on your microscope
The Leica DM2500 M adds convenience to your investigations that is one-of-a-kind in its class. The CDA "color-coded diaphragm assistant" makes it easy to determine the proper diaphragm settings, and the built-in focus stop protects both your specimens and the front lens of the objective.
For specimens of equivalent height, the focusing plane is easy to relocate. You can concentrate entirely on your application. These features make the new Leica DM2500 M the most advanced and reliable microscope in its class.

Flexibility is the key
With the DM2500 M stand, you can choose between two incident light axes:

1. The 4-fold incident light axis is optimal for bright field (BF) and dark field (DF) applications or differential interference contrast (DIC), qualitative polarization (POL) or fluorescence (Fluo) applications: the ideal solution for industrial quality control and metallographic examinations.
2. The 5-fold incident light axis has been specially designed for BF applications and is particulary well suited for use in the pharmaceutical industry, for example, analyzing cell growth on metal surfaces.

Three objective turrets are also available: the BF/DF M32 nosepiece holds up to five objectives; while the (BF/Fluo), can accommodate up to six or seven objectives.
