Leica M205 A Stereomicroscope

The Leica M205 A is the first stereomicroscopes in the world that can offer a 20.5:1 zoom. This accomplishment, however, was not enough for Leica's engineers. With the new FusionOptics™, they have succeeded in taking yet another step beyond previous limits. Besides the greater magnification, they have also increased the resolution to 1050lp/mm, which corresponds to a resolved structure size of 476nm. With digitally controlled zoom, focus (with the new motorized focus drive) and iris diaphragm, a Leica DFC camera, the motor­ized mechanical stage and versatile software modules of the Leica Application Suite (LAS), the Leica M205 A is capable of accepting any settings and performing any analysis expected of a stereomicroscope with a few clicks of the mouse.

* Focusing column with integrated cable channel keeps the workplace tidy

The correct observation height
When the observation height of the microscope is matched with the physical height of the user, a few millimeters are crucial. If the user has to change his head position to use the instrument, his entire body will assume an unnatural posture, which may cause headaches, a stiff neck, and reduced work performance. A tube with variable viewing height such as the new ergotrinocular tube solves this problem with a few twists of the wrist.

Completely integrated illuminator
The LED5000 RL ring illuminator is one of the new, fully integrated illumination components, completely controlled on the instrument or using the Leica Application Suite.

The correct focusing position
The motor focus can be operated easily with the SmartTouch™ or from the computer with the Leica Application Suite (LAS). The arm is relaxed and resting on the work surface. SmartTouch™, mouse and keyboard can be set up to meet your individual needs. This posture is far less tiring for the user than the conventional posture, even when he changes positions frequently.
