Leica – From Eye to Insight

We perceive the world through our eyes

Ernst Leitz has led our company to world fame. He knew from the beginning: Progress must be visible. Leica Microsystems’ innovations have redefined the boundaries of microscopy again and again.

Leica globally stands for setting new standards in the precision of optics, in resolution as well as in image reproduction and analysis. Microscopes and scientific instruments by Leica Microsystems provide researchers, engineers, and surgeons clear images of the microscopic world.

The Eye in Life Sciences.

By pushing the limits of resolution, speed, and ease of use, we enable scientists to gain INSIGHT beyond what has been possible and visible before so they can advance scientific understanding and safeguard health.

The Eye in Industry, Forensics and Education.

By constantly innovating we provide high-quality and easy-to-use solutions that enable users to gain INSIGHT and return-on-investment to their key questions in research, manufacturing, quality control, and forensics.

The Eye in Medicine.

By integrating intelligent surgical imaging and navigation technology, we deliver the INSIGHT and customer experience surgeons need to improve patient outcome while lowering cost of treatment.

Leica – From Eye to Insight

We strive for brilliant solutions, continuous improvement, and seek to inspire our customers.

Their requirements and requests are our incentive to develop solutions for visible progress – so that we can use our insight to constantly increase our understanding of the world.
