Leica DM2500 & DM2500 LED optical microscopes are tools for demanding tasks in life science routine and research applications. With their transmitted light illumination, optical performance, and state-of-the-art accessories, they are especially well-suited for challenging life science research tasks that require differential interference contrast or high-performance fluorescence.
The difference between the two optical microscopes is their illumination: DM2500 LED is equipped with LED illumination for transmitted light, DM2500 works with halogen. Both types of illumination render a realistic impression of the colors of the sample, so that users in clinical applications, such as the frequently used HE specimen staining, are able to assess the colors of their samples accurately.
Designed with application-oriented modularity, the DM2500 & DM2500 LED can be configured to fit a wide variety of applications and accommodate the diverse physical requirements of individual users.
For high-performance fluorescence imaging in cancer research, developmental biology, and other demanding life science applications, the Leica DM2500 & DM2500 LED microscopes provides all the functions and high-quality of an advanced platform for those who prefer the full flexibility of the manually controlled microscope.
Constant color temperature with LED illumination
High-performance LED illumination for analyzing in brightfield, DIC, and phase contrast. An added benefit when using LED transmitted light illumination is the constant color temperature at all light intensity levels. The ultra-bright LED illumination is suitable for all transmitted light contrasting methods. Due to the long life of an LED, Leica DM2500 LED also save the time and money spent on changing halogen lamps.
Clear and bright illumination
The high-performance illumination with the DM2500 and DM2500 LED provide an even field of view and is ideal not only for analyzing stained specimens in brightfield, but also for viewing unstained objects in DIC and phase contrast.
High-performance fluorescence with Zero Pixel Shift Technology, differential interference contrast, phase, and polarization contrast – Leica DM2500 & DM2500 LED offer a variety of application options to meet the challenging demands of biomedical research.
Use the unique, height-adjustable focus knobs and easy-to-change stage controls to customize the Leica DM2500 & DM2500 LED for individual users. Along with the other ergonomic equipment available, such as tilting tubes, intermediate modules, and a series of brightness-synchronized objectives, users will feel better after a long day of microscopy work.
Large selection of high class objectives
When the microscope is used for a wide range of applications, a larger selection of high class objectives is often required. To accommodate all necessary objectives at the same time, the innovative Leica DM2500 & DM2500 LED feature an optional 7-fold objective nosepiece.
Stay in control
The manual microscope with color coded diaphragm settings makes perfect control of the settings simple. Adjust aperture diaphragm, DIC prisms, fluorescence cubes, phase, and polarization contrast with just a few simple steps.
