Tell us what you want to achieve

Our products are tools, designed to enable you to reach your goals. We’ll gladly advise you which instruments or accessories will help you understand diseases, speed up your quality control workflow, see better in cavities while operating, or obtain insight into the dynamics of life with a light-stimulated, high-pressure frozen sample under the electron microscope.

Our tried and tested equipment comes in units, that means specific configurations you can add to, or as single parts.

Whatever you would like to do - we will certainly find a suitable solution.


Identification, documentation, and reporting is important for quality control and quality assurance, inspection and failure analysis applications as well as research and development. When it comes to assembly, our instruments offer the three-dimensional vision and working distance you require.

A range of sturdy, intelligently designed microscopes are perfect tools for classrooms. And we cover full microscopy workflows in forensics.

Life Sciences

The more researchers can see, the better they can understand life and its shapes and appearances. Whether for fixed or live cell applications, widefield or confocal microscopy - our isntruments enable researchers to visualize, image, measure, and analyze microstructures and nanostructures. Leica EM sample preparation instruments support the entire workflow up to imaging in the electron microscope.


Leica Microsystems support doctors and surgeons in their care for their patients. Leica surgical microscopes have their place in operating rooms and practices, visualizing procedures for an entire OR team.

They are used in spine and neurosurgery, ophthalmology as well as for ENT and Dental procedures.
