Leica Microsystems Launches New Generation of Digital Microscopes

Digital technologies have revolutionized everyone's work and everyday lives. In particular, industrial quality control -- which places the most stringent requirements on macroscopic and microscopic imaging and image processing -- benefits from innovative, reliable digital technology.


Leica DVM5000


Leica Microsystems' new generation of digital microscopes -- Leica DVM5000, DVM3000, and DVM2000 -- opens new horizons of mobility and speed.

With the Leica 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. Leica digital microscopes not only feature outstanding, high-quality optics, they also offer a wide variety of quantitative analysis options -- whether 2D analysis or advanced 3D surface measurements.

Leica DVM5000 - the portable all-in-one-system

For quality control, a sample is usually transferred to the microscope for inspection and analysis. However, some products cannot be transported and do not allow a sample to be taken for microscopic analysis; only nondestructive inspection is possible. The Leica DVM5000 is specifically designed for such situations. Here, the microscope is easily brought to the sample. The digital microscope, including the optics, monitor, and computer, can convert into a compact, portable system with just a few adjustments.

Leica DVM3000 - flexible in every respect

The Leica DVM3000 includes all the elements needed for high-quality digital imaging: zoom optics with encoded magnifications, 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 the Leica DVM3000 a compact, versatile digital microscope for a wide variety of applications.

Leica DVM2000 - digital microscope focused on the basics

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

Optimized digital imaging

All Leica digital microscopes are equipped with a 2.11-megapixel digital camera, which is perfectly matched to the microscope'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. Leica Microsystems has long used state-of-the-art 16-bit individual color detection to utilize 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. This is only a brief description of the versatile, intelligent software of the Leica DVM line and Leica Application Suite.
