Leica DVM6 Digital Microscopes Leica Leica Microsystems

Accuracy matters – tested and guaranteed

With one of the lowest measurement uncertainty the Leica DVM6 sets new standards for digital microscopy:

  • Measurement over the entire mag. range, with DVM6 calibrated at Vmax: +/- 1.5% (3σ)*
  • Measurement over the entire mag. range, with DVM6 calibrated at a minimum of 7 different Zoom positions: +/- 0.5% (3σ)*

The repeatability of the stage and focus column for DVM6 A/S is:

  • XY-Axis: +/- 3um
  • Z-Axis: +/- 0.5um

The linearity of the stage and focus column is:

  • XY-Axis: 0.2%
  • Z-Axis: 0.1%

* The above only reflects instrument specific repeatability. Variations from varying focus positions and placement of the measurement bar influenced by the operator are not covered by the above data.

Ease of use: One step from macro to micro in digital microscopy

With the DVM6, you can get from the big picture to smallest details in an instant. You can seamlessly carry on working even if changing objective is required, as the sample always stays in focus and no pre-adjustments are needed. With the tilting function you can observe your sample from different angles from up to ±60°. 

Why the Leica DVM6 saves you time

  • 16:1 zoom range makes changing between magnifications fast
  • 2350x magnification shows you details down to 0.4 micrometers on the same microscope
  • Horizontal field of view ranges from 35 mm to 0.18 mm at same focus level

One-hand operation

You will become an expert in virtually no time!

  • Work seamlessly thanks to one-handed objective change
  • Stay focused and operate the tilting function with one hand
  • Hybrid manual-motorized operation of X, Y and Z - smart automation helps you to be faster
  • Easy to operate, so little training time is needed

Image quality: See more with crisper images

Obtain excellent image quality! The Leica DVM6 has top notch optics that the Leica brand is famous for. Choose from different integrated LED illumination options and reveal details you have never seen before. Capture your image in natural colors with a high-resolution camera.

High quality objectives for your inspection and imaging tasks

Easily change magnification from 12x to 2,350x with one hand to inspect your samples. Choose the PlanApo objective that best fits your needs, and see more with the unique 16:1 zoom range.

Low Magnification Objective: Leica PlanApo FOV 43.75
This objective is ideally suited for large overviews as well as intricate measurement tasks due to the telecentric performance. It provides you with magnifications up to 190x at long working distance of 60 mm while eliminating perspective error.

Mid Magnification Objective: Leica PlanApo FOV 12.55
This flexible objective for your everyday routine work features a wide magnification range. You can quickly and easily gain more insight with 46x to 675x magnification and keep a comfortable 33 mm working distance.

High Magnification Objective: Leica PlanApo FOV 3.60
This high power objective is ideally suited for magnification up to 2,350x at 425 nm resolution. Enjoy working with this objective to see details that others don`t reveal thanks to the unique PlanApo corrected zoom optics from Leica Microsystems.

Why you can discover more with the Leica DVM6

  • 10-megapixel high-resolution camera
  • Fast live image display with more than 30 frames per second
  • More details with excellent PlanApo-corrected Leica optics
  • Illuminate your sample perfectly even at large field of view
  • Combine illumination and contrasting options in various ways to highlight your sample features best
1: Captured with low magnification objective, zoom 10x. Without BLI / with BLI
2: Captured with mid magnification objective, zoom 1x. Ringlight illumination / diffusor adapter / polarizer adapter

Discover your possibilities with optional accessories

Make visible what was previously invisible with a wide variety of illumination options and accessories.

  • Explore hard-to-image regions of interest with the BLI Transmitted Illumination Adapter (Backlight Illumination) for precise analysis of thermal vias in PCBs or inspection of transparent materials, for example.
  • Effectively reduce glare on reflective samples, such as polished metal surfaces with the Diffusor Adapter.
  • Accurately identify particle contamination or material properties with the Polarizer Adapter.
  • Easily access any sample, even if it is large or bulky with a larger microscope stand - the DVM6 interface module allows you to mount the zoom module onto an XL focus column from Leica Microsystems. 

Impressive Results: Rely on intelligent automation

Speed up your daily work and especially repetitive tasks with the DVM6. The system automatically stores settings for you in the background. The encoded functions of the digital microscope make your data accurate, reliable and help to prevent errors. The LAS X software supports you with easy navigation and offers a measurement tool for every need. You can be sure that every user delivers the same quality of data.

Why you can reproduce results easily

  • Zoom range is continuously encoded and calibrated
  • All instrument components are sensor-controlled
  • All settings saved with every image, e.g. illumination, position, magnification
  • Create a report for 2D and 3D measurements with one click

Intuitive software: Your autopilot

The LAS X software is a key factor in making the DVM6 fast, easy to use, and reliable. Create perfect images, either single shots or large stitched images in XYZ with predefined acquisition modes. Efficient analyses are inherent: You can measure in 2D and 3D, and annotate the image. At the end, you can export your results to a customized Excel report template with a single click.

How LAS X helps you speed up your workflow

  • Improve your image easily with the Image Preview - choose out of six different suggestions. Customize those with your preferred settings with a single click
  • Live image with High Dynamic Range (HDR) to see every detail right away
  • Large brightness differences on the sample surface are displayed with detail richness making high dynamic differences in the sample nicely visible
  • Extend 3D images over the full XY-scanning area with virtual no size limit
  • LAS X is a native 64-bit application under Windows 7 and runs on a standard PC

Find your Leica DVM6 configuration

The Leica DVM6 digital microscope is available in three different configurations to help you find the solution that best fits your application and budget needs. 

Choose between three options

  • Do you need high resolution images and application versatility? The DVM6 C is the perfect microscope if you cannot compromise on image quality.
  • Are you also looking for multi-focus images and 3D-analysis? With the DVM6 S you add the comfort of a motorized focus to the imaging capabilities. And you will love the autofocus.
  • Would you also like to scan larger areas in high resolution? The DVM6 A is the recommended microscope if ultimate versatility is required. You can capture large images in XYZ with just a single click.
