STELLARIS 8 is a forward-looking system, offering all the benefits of the STELLARIS 5 core system plus added functionality thanks to an extended spectrum WLL and specialized detector options of the Power HyD family. This allows you to expand the range of confocal applications in your research. STELLARIS 8 can be combined with all Leica Microsystems modalities, including FAst Lifetime CONtrast (FALCON), Deep In Vivo Explorer (DIVE), STED, Digital Light Sheet (DLS) and CARS. STELLARIS 8 new features maximize the potential of these modalities and give you the power and potential to set new standards for research.



More than a highly automated microscope, Mica unites widefield and confocal imaging in a sample protecting, incubating environment. With the simple push of a button, you have everything you need - all in one place - to supercharge fluorescence imaging workflows and get meaningful scientific results faster.


THUNDER Imager Live Cell and 3D Assay

With THUNDER Imagers you begin every experiment with confidence. They are your solution for advanced 3D cell culture assays, whether you want to study stem cells, spheroids, or organoids.

THUNDER Imagers feature the innovative Leica technology Computational Clearing. It efficiently removes out-of-focus blur in real time, enabling the meaningful use of 3D specimens with camera-based fluorescence microscopes. The high sensitivity of the system ensures low phototoxicity and photobleaching, i.e., higher throughput with optimal conditions.


THUNDER Imager Model Organism

The THUNDER Imager Model Organism allows fast and easy 3D exploration of whole organisms for developmental or molecular biology research. Thanks to THUNDER Live, your images reveal the finest structural details already in the live image. No hassle with out-of-focus blur while maintaining the capabilities and ease-of-use typical for Leica stereo microscopes.

A THUNDER Imager Model Organism is the optimal instrument for studying, e.g., Drosophila, C. elegans, zebrafish, plants, and mice. One device for screening, positioning, and imaging your specimen. Simplify your workflow and study model organisms from a large overview to the highest detail.


Leica M165 FC Fluorescent Stereo Microscope

The Leica M165 FC fully apochromatic corrected stereo microscope with 16.5:1 zoom optics resolves structures down to 1.1 micron for detailed fluorescent imaging.

Image coding allows easy, convenient reproduction of image settings and parameters for fast, consistent, high quality observation and documentation.

TripleBeam technology dedicates a separate beam channel for fluorescence illumination to enhance image contrast, details and intensity for better performance.



The M series stereo microscopes have been designed to provide tailored solutions for operators working in laboratories or in manufacturing. You can easily change from sample overview to fine detail imaging. No refocusing is needed when changing magnification - parfocal optics allow you to keep your sample in focus at all zoom levels.

M80 with 8:1-zoom range, with a continuous zoom from 7.5x – 60x including engageable click stops – expanding your insights and reliability. Optimized for higher magnification to see smaller details in perfect contrast.



  • SEE WHAT YOU NEED TO SEE thanks to homogenous illumination with two integrated LED light paths providing high color perception and reproduction
  • Provides the same practical, flexible, and ergonomic setup as in a medical clinic
  • Record every surgery for thorough documentation using the fully integrated, cable-free 4K camera
