The right diaphragm – automatically
The Leica DM4500 P automatically detects which contrast method and objective are being used. This provides valuable consistency and reproducibility for your research. Manual diaphragm setting is no longer required, either in the transmitted light or incident light method. You can concentrate on your work – the Leica DM4500 P takes care of the rest for you.

Always in the right light
Light intensity automatically adjusts to the objective. Image brightness remains constant when switching objectives, which eliminates glare. You can always adjust the light intensity manually as well.

All settings at a glance
You can see all microscope settings at a glance on the easy-toread, integrated display: information such as contrast method, orthoscopic or conoscopic mode, objective, diaphragm setting, and light intensity are clearly indicated. With this feedback, results can easily be reproduced.

Perfect interaction of all functions
The interaction between the display and coding of the individual modules allows the microscope to guide your work. With just one look at the display, all relevant information is at your fingertips. For example, the display indicates when to swing the conoscopy module into or out of the beam path. You have the ability to adjust the light and diaphragm values to obtain the best conoscopic image at any time.

Archiving and documentation is easy
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.
