Microscope Imaging Software

Microscope imaging software from Leica Microsystems combines microscope, digital camera and accessories into one fully integrated solution.

An all-encompassing solution

With an intuitive user interface and straightforward navigation, our microscope imaging software guides the user through their workflow, whether fast image acquisition or sophisticated expert analysis. A range of specific modules allows configuration of the microscope as a dedicated high-performance tool for almost any application.

The latest software platform, LAS X, encompasses all microscope solutions for Life Science and Industry applications, offering maximum flexibility. The previous Leica Application Suite continues to be supported.

Core Features

  • Microscope and digital camera configuration and control in a fully integrated manner.
  • Basic annotation tools allow image and calibration data to be added to images.
  • Auto and manual exposure adjustments allow optimized imaging conditions.
  • A thumbnail gallery of acquired images, which can be reviewed quickly and easily.
  • Automatically calibrated images using data read from Leica microscopes and cameras; a scale bar indicates image size.

LAS X Industry

  • Observe your sample over the full screen
  • Make streamlined and flexible measurements when doing analysis
  • Enhance your imaging with stitching in X, Y, and Z 
  • Acquire and recall reliable and reproducible results
  • Customize report templates for your needs

LAS X Materials Science Modules

  • Allows users to rapidly perform structural analysis of steel and other materials.
  • Enables the advanced analysis of multiple phases and microstructure components.
  • Specifically developed to combine accurate object and area measurements with high flexibility to tailor automated analyses to a user’s particular needs.
  • Offers a significant improvement in ergonomics and aids users in maintaining consistent accuracy in measurements over time.

LAS X Life Science

  • Integrates confocal, widefield, stereo, super-resolution, and light-sheet instruments from Leica Microsystems.
  • Create fast overviews and identify the important details instantly with the LAS X Navigator - a GPS for your cells
  • Imaging tasks become intuitive allowing to focus on your research

3D visualization & analysis

LAS X software visualizes samples in 3D allowing 3D analysis for measuring various aspects of intracellular structures such as volumes of nuclei, their surface, or distances and angles between the nuclei.
