Leica Intros Line of Digital Microscopes
DVM5000 digital microscope system equally at home in lab or in the field.
Wetzlar, Germany — Leica Microsystems has introduced its new generation of digital microscopes — the DVM5000, DVM3000, and DVM2000. With the DVM line, the microscopic image is displayed directly on a high-resolution monitor. The streamlined zoom optics reach extremely difficult-to-access surfaces for nondestructive inspection of even the largest stationary parts, which could only be examined with great effort using traditional microscope techniques. The new digital microscopes not only provide outstanding, high-quality optics, they also offer a wide variety of quantitative analysis options — whether 2D analysis or advanced 3D surface measurements.

The DVM5000 is a portable all-in-one-system, that can examine nondestructively; the instrument is specifically designed for such situations. The microscope is easily brought to the sample. The digital microscope, including the optics, monitor, and computer, become a compact, portable system with just a few adjustments. The DVM3000 includes all the elements needed for high-quality digital imaging: zoom optics with encoded magnification, high-performance digital camera, integrated metal halide lamp, and standard interfaces for computer and monitor to enable all sample-related data to be sent to the computer for subsequent evaluation. Its open, modular design makes it a compact, versatile digital microscope for a wide variety of applications.

The DVM2000 is an entry-level digital microscope, comprised of zoom optics, digital camera, and software and is based on standard components. It also provides many options from a comprehensive range of products and accessories to configure the correct digital solution for individual needs.

All of the company's digital microscopes are equipped with a 2.11-megapixel digital camera, which is perfectly matched to the instrument's optics. Combined with high-resolution optical zoom, this highly sensitive CCD camera generates digital images of all samples with the best possible information yield — without enlarging the data volume and file size of individual images. The state-of-the-art 16-bit individual color detection utilizes the entire dynamic image range. The HDR-Module takes images of samples with extreme differences of brightness, while the SmartTiling Module combines many single images into one large mosaic with the help of a manual x/y-stage.
