Contrasting methods

In addition to Phase Contrast and Brightfield illumination, the DM IL features unique Integrated Modulation Contrast (IMC) from Leica without the need for special objectives.

Available for 10x, 20x, 32x, and 40x magnification.

Cell culture

With a long working distance the standard DM IL microscope allows you to conveniently monitor large cell culture flasks.

If your cell production reaches the next level, DM IL Cell Factory is the right choice. With a transmitted light arm of 480 mm, large multilayer vessels with up to 10 chambers can be checked—even using fluorescence.

Your current DM IL can be upgraded later to accommodate large scale cell production.

Please contact your local sales representative for further information.

Live cell imaging

When observing living cells under a microscope, it’s essential to maintain optimal conditions for the organisms. Leica Microsystems offers a wide range of accessories for any application, so the environmental conditions can be controlled easily during one experiment.

Environmental Equipment for Leica Inverted Microscope


A broad portfolio of digital cameras for brightfield and fluorescence documentation complements the DM IL LED imaging system.

Together with powerful LAS X software, any desired task in your workflow can be supported, from simple documentation up to live cell imaging of your cells.

Relaxed and comfortable

The ergonomic design of controls such as the focus dial, brightness controller, condenser height adjustment, objective nosepiece, and XY stage adjustment allows the user to comfortably work and manipulate their sample.

The microscope can even adapt to different users with height-adjustable stages and ergo tubes with variable height.

Product life of 50,000 hours

High-intensity, high-contrast 5W LED illumination with a product life of 50,000 hours provides a constant color temperature. This makes documentation of your results remarkably easy and reliable. The brightness of the LED automatically adjusts to the contrast method which reduces the time needed for manual interactions.
