Leica DM IL Inverted Microscope with Fluorescence and SPOT Camera System

Main Use: Laboratory Microscopy in Cell Biology and Medicine

All available contrast methods can be adapted to individual applications easily and quickly. Two condensers have been developed specifically for the Leica DM IL LED, which can be used for the entire magnification range of the respective contrast method. The high-resolution S40/0.45 condenser makes even tiny details of a specimen visible. Both condensers, the S40/0.45 and S80/0.30, allow for use of phase contrast up to the 63x objective as well as Integrated Modulation Contrast (IMC) up to the 40x objective.
