Stereo microscopes for different applications
Different applications make different demands of a stereo microscope. We identify customers‘ needs and take them as the basis for our product development. Thanks to the modular design of our stereo microscopes, we can provide a customized solution for any application imaginable.
Ergonomics boosts your productivity and cuts costs
Our stereo microscopes adapt to their users, not the other way round! Invest in ergonomical workstations for fatigue-free work and greater productivity. Our comprehensive ergonomy program enables every user to match their Leica stereo microscope to their individual size and the way they work.
Leica Macroscopes are among the most precise on the market. They are used for a wide variety of applications in industry, medicine and research.
Macroscopes with top-level operational convenience
Leica Macroscopes with apochromatic 16:1 zoom offer not only exceptional optics but also top-level operational convenience. Together with the new Leica Application Suite software they enable first-class documentation and analysis of the image material. Thanks to the unique modularity of our automated macroscopes, you can adapt the instrument to your individual needs and routines.
The Best of Both Worlds
We have designed the first macroscope with fluorescence technology. This innovation brings you excellent results: maximum field depth and color fidelity guarantee superlative imaging precision.

Stereomicroscopes offer the great advantage of providing a three dimensional view of the sample. This is vitally important for understanding or inspecting microscopic structures, their spatial extent and nature. Stereomicroscopes are therefore indispensable in a huge number of applications ranging from industrial production, quality control and materials research to forensics, biotechnology, genetics and nearly all areas of biomedical research. Modern stereomicroscopes are based on a modular design, allowing them to be configured for individual applications and tailored to the ergonomic needs of the user.
