WETZLAR. GHE-member Leica Microsystems is presenting a host of brand new microscope systems for biosciences at BIOTECHNICA.

The internationally operating optics company even has a small sensation in store for stereomicroscopists: The new Leica M205 C breaks through the previous optical resolution limits of stereomicroscopy by incorporating Leica’s new FusionOpticTM technology (patent pending) which takes advantage of a neurological phenomenon.

The left beam path produces great depth of field, while the right beam path provides a high-resolution image. The human brain then combines the best information from both channels to compose an image whose resolution and depth of field have never been achieved in any stereomicroscope before. The Leica M205 C is the world's first stereomicroscope with a fully apochromatically corrected 20.5:1 zoom. In the zoom range from 0.78x to 16x, the resolution increases continuously up to 1050 lp/mm (planapochromat objective 2x). Due to the natural laws of optics, this performance class has never been seen before in stereomicroscopes.

Whether for cancer research, other areas of pathology, proteomics, genomics, gene expression profiling or neuroscience, the successful laser microdissection system Leica LMD6000 satisfies the requirements of even the most modern research labs. The Leica LMD6000 is characterized by intelligent automation, improved performance, optimized specimen throughput and high precision, with innovations in all areas of obtaining material for analysis.
