WETZLAR, Germany, April 23, 2015 — The DVM6 digital microscope by Leica Microsystems GmbH is suited for precise and repeatable imaging, analysis and measurement in quality control, failure analysis, research and development, and forensics applications. The device features a zoom range of 16:1 and integrated illumination options. There is a choice of three objectives covering a magnification range between 10× and 2350×, resolving details down to 0.4 μm. The PlanApo-corrected objectives show no color fringes over the full zoom range. The objectives keep the sample in focus, enabling operators to change objectives with one hand and work without interruption. A tiltable microscope head enables sample viewing at angles from -60° to 60°. The device tracks parameter values and saves them with the image data. Encoding parameters include sample stage position, rotation angle of manual and motorized movement, and objective, camera and illumination settings.
