Leica DMI3000 B Inverted Microscope

Versatility in transmitted light - Brilliant in fluorescence
The New Leica DMI3000 B (optional with fluorescence illumination) offers a level of technology, functionality,and user convenience that is unique in this class of inverted research microscope. Featuring the largest number of transmitted light illumination options and a condenser with extra long working distance, the Leica DMI3000 B is ideal for all transmitted light contrast techniques. Choose from five manual condensers with different working distances for brightfield, phase contrast, darkfield, integrated modulation contrast (IMC), polarization or differential interference contrast (DIC) techniques. Leica's integrated modulation and phase contrast solutions eliminate the need for additional special objectives and increase throughput in fluorescence.

Experience and innovation - the art of creating brilliant images
The options of the transmitted light axis will convince you. The DMI3000 B supports all transmitted light methods - and more. Let Leica's integrated interpupillary interface and its unparalleled possibilities surprise you.

Adapted, yet individual
Your research is unique and the microscope you use for it should be as well. Leica cooperates closely with accessory manufacturers for that reason. As a result, we can ensure that any accessory you need for your new system will integrate reliably into the Leica DMI3000 B system.

The Experts Call it Ergonomics. We Call it Convenience.
The ergonomic tube is a standard feature of the DMI3000 B. The viewing angle of the tube can be adjusted continuously to ensure the best possible user posture. By building the ergonomic tube into every stand, we provide the benefit of ergonomy at the same price as our fixed angle tube.

Convenient overviews
There is no substitute for an unobstructed clear view of the specimen. That's why Leica invented the "viewing channel" - a notch between the eyepieces that provides a clear view of the specimen regardless of the position of the ergonomic tube.

Convenient operation
All of the microscope's controls were placed in easily accessible locations, as developed in cooperation with engineers of the Fraunhofer Institute IAO. The positioning is so natural that you can reach the focus buttons without looking.

Take the optics into your own hands - The new integrated modulation contrast (IMC)
Leica optics experts have created an integrated interpupillary interface. Now users have an effective, yet affordable, modulation contrast solution with bright field objectives.

Why settle for less? The new integrated phase contrast (IPH)
If you can realize modulation contrast with bright field objectives, why buy special objectives for phase contrast? Leica has applied the integrated pupil interface to another revolutionary contrast method, IPH the first phase contrast in which you can influence the contrast yourself - using bright field objectives.

Brilliant fluorescence
The new Leica DMI3000 B is designed for all fluorescence techniques, and accommodates standard and custom filter cubes in the 5-position fluorescence turret. Single or multiple stains, GFP applications, and immunofluorescence – all are accomplished quickly and easily with the Leica DMI3000 B. Leica's fluorescence intensity manager (FIM) automatically adjusts the illumination intensity as well as the aperture and field diaphragms to optimize your images. The fluorescence cubes feature light traps for reducing background light to produce a perfectly black background.

Micromanipulation must be properly configured on a microscope system. The system shows an integrated solution consisting of a Leica DMI3000 B inverted microscope and Narishige micromanipulation equipment.
The micromanipulation stage with its slim design allows easy adaptation of micromanipulators. At 28 mm, the S28 condenser provides ample working distance for micromanipulation using all contrast techniques. If more working distance is required, the S40 condenser with 40 mm working distance is available for all contrast techniques except DIC; and the S70 condenser with 70 mm working distance is available for all contrast techniques except IMC/IPH.

Everything under control
A comprehensive range of control equipment is available for the Leica DMI3000 B. Carbon dioxide control units maintain constant pH values. Oxygen controllers regulate the O2 concentration required by the cells. Temperature regulators are also available that are capable of maintaining any required physiological temperature.

Perfect climate
Your specimens require defined environmental conditions for your experiments. The Leica DMI3000 B offers everything you need in this respect. Leica climate chambers are available in a variety of sizes - from models designed to accommodate a single Petri dish, to one that encloses the entire microscope.
