Medical Device manufacturing microscopes from Leica Microsystems help improve production efficiency while reducing muscle and eye strain from repetitive tasks, all while providing high quality optical imaging.
Digital microscopes have no eyepieces and the image is observed directly on a monitor. They are very popular for a variety of applications in multiple fields. State-of-the-art digital microscopes, such as the Leica DVM6, allow an efficient workflow for forensic analysis. Examples of how forensic scientists can gather evidence from hair, fibers, paint layers, explosive residues/small particles, and insects efficiently using the Leica DVM6 digital microscope are described in this report.
The examples reported here demonstrate how digital microscopy enables forensic scientists to gather and compare evidence from ballistics and tool marks or counterfeited money, credit cards, and documents, more efficiently. Images and videos clearly show how to use the digital microscope to perform forensics investigations and how you speed up your workflow with the help of practical features, such as a convenient way to change magnification rapidly over the full range, tilting, sample rotation, and versatile illumination.
In the automotive industry, microscopists may be challenged with samples that are difficult to image, for example, parts that have a special material composition. This report shows how the Leica DVM6 digital microscope helps to make inspection, measurement analysis, and reporting of such challenging samples quicker and easier.
Checking specifications is critical: During the manufacture of auto parts, specifications must be met – whether by the auto parts supplier or the automobile manufacturer. It is important that the parts meet specifications as they are critical for maintaining the performance standards and safe operation of automobiles, trucks, and other vehicles during their lifetimes.
Forensic experts work with a broad range of microscopes to examine evidence from firearms and tool marks, documents, forensic or legal medicine, hair and fibers as well as glass and paint. Digital microscopes support many of these investigations, in which the materials can be very different in character. This image gallery shows examples what digital microscopy can reveal in typical forensics’ samples.
For the past several years, digital microscopy has been shown to be useful for inspection, quality control and assurance (QC/QA), and failure analysis (FA) in the microelectronics industry, especially for printed circuit boards (PCBs). Recently, state-of-the-art improvements have made digital microscopy even more powerful and practical for inspection, leading to a more efficient workflow. Here, the advantages of certain digital microscope features, i.e., intuitive software for operation and analysis, fast and easy ways to change magnification, and encoding for reliable recall of parameters, are explained.
State-of-the-art digital microscopes utilizing a versatile illumination system capable of achieving multiple contrast methods, such as the Leica DVM6, are very useful for inspection, quality control, and failure analysis. These contrast methods allow flaws or defects on the surface of a product or component to be more easily and rapidly detected.
Digital microscopy is one of the buzz words in microscopy – and there are a couple of facts that are useful to know. Georg Schlaffer, Product Manager with Leica Microsystems, has often been asked about digital microscopy by customers and colleagues alike. He has worked together with Scientific Writer Jim DeRose for comprehensive answers to the most important ones.
One important criterion concerning the performance of an optical microscope is magnification. This report will offer digital microscopy users helpful guidelines to determine the useful range of magnification values.
Digital microscopes can be a great help in life science applications such as the documentation in botany, entomology studies and crop science, or the digitization of museum collections. The image quality digital microscopes yield, is stunning – this image gallery gives you an idea. Enjoy!
