Speed Up Your Workflow With Inverted Microscopy

Inverted microscopes enable you to save time and money. Unlike upright microscopes you can simply put your specimen on the stage, focus onto the surface once and have it focused for all magnifications and further samples. And because the objectives are positioned below the stage the risk of collision with the sample is reduced.

Save time

  • You can change 4 times faster between samples
  • You benefit from a large working space to easily place even huge and heavy samples.
  • Work with samples that weigh up to 30 kg.

See More of Your Sample

Do you need to work with big samples and analyse more of them? See more of your sample in a shorter time thanks to the Macro* objective offered exclusively by Leica Microsystems. Change from the macro (35 mm) to nano (200 nm) with only a click.

  • You get 4x times the field of view (35.7 mm sample overview at 0.7x magnification) in comparison to standard objectives with the macro objective
  • You can change between different magnifications – 0.7x – 5x – 10x – 20x- 50x – 100x – and illuminate your sample from different angles
  • You increase your sample throughput with the 3 position focus drive allowing you sensitive and adjustable focusing at various magnifications
