Save time for 2D and 3D analysis

Optimize your workflow with the DVM6 digital microscope LAS X software from Leica Microsystems.

LAS X.next, a streamlined software user interface, helps you to save time when acquiring 2D and 3D scanned images*. This makes task-flows clearer, simpler and intuitive for operators due to its streamlined user interface and fast navigation.

Carry out your component analysis faster. LAS X.next guides you through image acquisition, measurement**, and reporting, providing an efficient workflow and reliable reproducibility of results. It provides a straightforward operation for the DVM6 system for faster completion of your work steps.

Benefit from

  • Fast and straightforward navigation: Predefined task-flows help to reduce complexity, therefore saving time for users with different levels of experience
  • Smart illumination: Assisted image brightness algorithms make it effortless to get the perfect image setting
  • Easy acquisition of 2D and 3D images: Use interactive scan points to define a scan area or volume

* Results depend on sample, used objective, zoom and microscope settings.
** Measurement results depend on used objective, zoom and microscope settings.

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

Accuracy matters – tested and guaranteed

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%

Ease of use: One step from macro to micro

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

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

With a wide variety of illumination options and accessories you can:

  • 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. 

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.
