The Optical Specialist
The Leica DMI3000 M offers an especially useful feature for materials examination – the stand's built-in oblique illumination is ideal for difficult-to-evaluate samples, which enables the researcher to literally see the sample in a new light.

Experience and Innovation - The Art of Creating Brilliant Images
Leica's new incident light axis offers image brilliance, depth of field, and high resolution. The microscope's apochromatically corrected beam path sets new standards of image clarity over the entire field of view.

Versatility - The Foundation for Future Possibilities
For ever-changing tasks and new applications, the Leica DMI3000 M is the solution. Choose between standard or high-performance objectives and fixed or motorized stages. The system can easily adapt additional contrast methods, such as darkfield or differential interference contrast (DIC).

Integration - Achieve more with the Perfect Team
Every microscope system and accessory by Leica Microsystems meets the most stringent quality requirements. The microscope, camera, and software perfectly match each other, regardless of which components or software modules comprise the system. All components work ideally together.

Flexibility - Customized and Individualized
To fit a particular research task, the microscope has to be one-of-a-kind. Leica Microsystems offers a wide variety of configuration options and works closely with accessory manufacturers to ensure that every accessory reliably integrates with the Leica DMI3000 M.

Versatility - A Standard Feature
Whether analyzing polished metal samples in incident light or examining powder in transmitted light, the Leica
DMI3000 M's new incident light axis allows the researcher to work in brightfield, darkfield, DIC modes or with quantitative polarization. For difficult-to-evaluate samples, a simple press of a button activates the integrated oblique illumination and switches over to transmitted light. Transmitted light, brightfield, darkfield, DIC, polarization, and phase contrast modes provide excellent imaging results and ease of use.

Dual Camera System
The Leica DMI3000 M is equipped with two camera outputs to allow a camera for fast live imaging and another camera for video recording. One output is on the side of the stand and can easily toggle between a 0/100% and 80/20% light division. The other output is located on the tube. This outstanding two-output feature allows the researcher to choose which output to use for a particular camera and how much light is sent to the outputs. Leica's product range of thirteen different optical prisms with various transmission levels allows a multitude of possibilities.
