Leica DM2500 P Polarization Microscope

The Microscope that Adapts to Each User
The Leica DM2500 P is designed for all routine polarizing examinations in: petrography, mineralogy, structure characterization, examination of liquid crystals and fibers.

With versatile instrument options, the Leica DM2500 P polarizing microscope is also an ideal match for industrial analysis and quality control, such as analyzing glass, plastics, textiles and fibers or testing displays in the semiconductor industry.

Comfortable and relaxed work
No two people are alike. The Leica DM2500 P ensures that every user can work at the microscope in a relaxed manner. The height of the microscope's focus knobs can be individually adjusted to fit each user's exact hand size, which prevents hand, arm, and shoulder tension and ensures a comfortable and fatigue-free posture.

Efficient and reproducible microscopy
Color-coded lenses match the color-coded field and aperture diaphragm adjustment (CDA), to ensure that the illumination conditions are always matched to the objective. Using a manual microscope has never been easier. With CDA, the Leica DM2500 P offers a level of reproducibility that is one-of-a-kind in its class.

Reliably and accurately adjusts to your sample
The built-in focus stop protects your samples and the front lens of the objective. For samples of equal height, the focus stop makes the focusing plane easier to reconstruct so you can concentrate entirely on your application.

Versatile and adaptable
You have a choice of two conoscopy modules to supplement the Leica DM2500 P. The advanced conoscopy module with a centerable, focusable Bertrand lens and extended field of view has been designed for advanced requirements in conoscopy. As an economical alternative, Leica offers the standard conoscopy module with a pre-focused, centerable Bertrand lens, built-in analyzer, and integrated pinhole for examining small grains.

Camera and Software Modules - Complete the System
The basic core functionality of the Leica Application Suite (LAS) is provided with every Leica microscope and digital camera as part of an integrated system solution. Together, the combined system provides an intelligent, automated microimaging environment. LAS is the basic software for microscope configuration and control, and provides a platform for acquiring, analyzing, and processing the highest quality digital images.

LAS Reticule for comparison and measurement
The LAS Reticule application provides electronic tools for displaying live images and overlaying different types of measuring reticules. LAS Reticule provides visual feedback about the approximate size of the field of view. In this way, object size comparisons and distribution measurements can be carried out quickly and effortlessly.
