Mobile digital microscopes for surface measurement by Leica Microsystems

Leica Microsystems presents its next generation of digital microscopes, the Leica DVM5000 HD and DVM2500. The DVM2500 is a combination of a FireWire camera and a compact control unit. The camera is compatible with all the zoom optics of the Leica VZ series and the optics are easily changed. The control unit integrates a powerful LED light source with adequate reserves for high magnifications. The use of standard Microsoft Windows interfaces facilitates the integration of the DVM2500 into existing IT infrastructures. The Leica DVM5000 HD combines the benefits of digital microscopy in a compact, self-contained system. Adopting the advantages of its predecessor, the DVM5000, it adds state-of-the-art hardware: the full HD screen resolution yields a high-contrast yet natural monitor image.

PRESS RELEASE


Next Generation of Digital Microscopes: Leica DVM5000 HD and DVM2500
Mobile, Fast Digital Microscopes for Quantitative 2D and 3D Surface Measurement

Heerbrugg, Switzerland, December 12, 2011 - Digital microscopes by Leica Microsystems are successfully established as analytical instruments in applications such as pharmaceutics, materials research, and electronics production. Industrial quality control, which makes immense demands of macro- and microscopic imaging and image processing, derives particular benefit from innovative digital technology. Leica Microsystems now presents its next generation of digital microscopes, the Leica DVM5000 HD and DVM2500.

Leica DVM2500 – versatile in every way
The Leica DVM2500 is a combination of a fast FireWire camera and a compact control unit. The camera is compatible with all the zoom optics of the Leica VZ series and the optics are easily changed. The control unit integrates a powerful LED light source with adequate reserves for high magnifications. The use of standard Microsoft Windows interfaces facilitates the integration of the DVM2500 into existing IT infrastructures. For image analysis, the Leica Application Suite (LAS) provides a modular, efficient and proven successful software solution that can be individually adapted to any application and upgraded as necessary. For example, 3D models can be created with LAS Montage and analyzed in Leica MAP. The object field for large samples can be extended in real time with the LAS Live Image Builder module.

Leica DVM5000 HD – the high-performance all-in-one system
The Leica DVM5000 HD combines the benefits of digital microscopy in a compact, self-contained system. Adopting the advantages of its predecessor, the DVM5000, it adds state-of-the-art hardware: the full HD screen resolution guarantees a high-contrast yet natural monitor image. Specially matched system components allow a smooth workflow – even for complex 3D analysis. Thanks to the microscope’s compact design and only a few cables between the optics and the system, the installation is lean and user-friendly. Operating costs are reduced by the use of the latest high-performance LEDs: With a lifetime of up to 30,000 hours, there are virtually no more downtimes and the environment benefits from the low energy consumption.

With the DVM2500 and DVM5000 HD, Leica Microsystems is offering two microscope systems that deliver full reports fast and with digital precision. The selection of zoom optics and extensive accessories enable the digital microscopes to be tailored to a wide range of applications and to the particular infrastructure at the user’s site. The subsequent analysis of the results is faster and easier than ever before.

Leica Microsystems is a world leader in microscopes and scientific instruments. Founded as a family business in the nineteenth century, the company’s history was marked by unparalleled innovation on its way to becoming a global enterprise. Its historically close cooperation with the scientific community is the key to Leica Microsystems’ tradition of innovation, which draws on users’ ideas and creates solutions tailored to their requirements. At the global level, Leica Microsystems is organized in four divisions, all of which are among the leaders in their respective fields: the Life Science Division, Industry Division, Biosystems Division and Medical Division.

Leica Microsystems’ Biosystems Division, also known as Leica Biosystems, offers histopathology laboratories the most extensive product range with appropriate products for each work step in histology and for a high level of productivity in the working processes of the entire laboratory. The company is represented in over 100 countries with 12 manufacturing facilities in 7 countries, sales and service organizations in 19 countries and an international network of dealers. The company is headquartered in Wetzlar, Germany.
