Leica Microsystems Expands its Micromanipulation Activities

Requirements can vary depending on the application, however: for example, transgenics work calls for extremely complex systems to achieve optimal results. For ICSI (intra cellular sperm injection) applications, ease of use is a priority.

The tight integration of the Leica DMI6000 B inverted research microscope and Leica/Eppendorf (GHE member) micromanipulators in the optimized Leica AM6000 system offers a wide range of advantages for users. As the successor to the unique Leica AS TP, the Leica AM6000 has been tailored to transgenics ICSI and IMSI applications.

The micromanipulators and microscope can be operated with ease using a shared control panel designed by Leica Microsystems and Eppendorf developers. This intelligent integration accelerates work processes and increases the yield of transgenic organisms.

Automated contrast processes that can be selected at the touch of a button enhance the system's convenience further. Again Leica is setting here a new standard in micromanipulation.
