They are very popular for a variety of applications in multiple fields. State-of-the-art digital microscopes, such as the Leica DVM6, allow an efficient workflow for forensic analysis. Examples of how forensic scientists can gather evidence from hair, fibers, paint layers, explosive residues/small particles, and insects efficiently using the Leica DVM6 digital microscope are described in this report. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/forensics-how-to-gather-evidence-from-hair-fibers-paint-explosives-and-insects-fast-and-easily-with-digital-microscopy/ Fri, 27 Jan 2017 09:00:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, MSc Michael Doppler, Ramona Iske https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17444 Digital Microscopy Image gallery: Life Science Imaging with the Leica DVM6 Digital Microscope Digital microscopes can be a great help in life science applications such as the documentation in botany, entomology studies and crop science, or the digitization of museum collections. The image quality digital microscopes yield, is stunning – this image gallery gives you an idea.

Biologist Dr. Joachim Schmidt devotes his entire scientific work to the research of these frequently very small beetles, their ecology, distribution and phylogeny. He is particularly interested in the ground beetles of high mountain regions. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/ground-beetles-shed-light-on-the-environmental-history-of-high-mountain-regions/ Tue, 05 Nov 2013 12:48:00 +0000 M.

At the end of the 16th century, the friars of the Capuchin monastery in Palermo, Italy, began preserving corpses by embalming them. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/in-the-catacombs-of-the-capuchin-monastery-in-palermo/ Thu, 02 May 2013 12:51:00 +0000 M.

Benecke is a welcome guest on talk shows on topics such as forensic trace analysis, murder or the depths of the human psyche in general. He also enjoys an excellent international reputation. However, Mark Benecke’s normal working day bears little resemblance to the scenes shown in TV crime drama series. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/even-insect-fragments-throw-light-on-how-crimes-are-committed-how-forensic-biologist-dr-mark-benecke-gains-insights/ Sun, 02 Sep 2012 22:00:00 +0000 M.

And what better person to tell it than Brian Fisher? Fisher is an entomologist at the California Academy of Sciences and Project Manager of AntWeb.org. The internet portal illustrates the diversity of ants by providing information and high quality color images of many of the approximately 10,000 known species of ants. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/antweb-documents-the-world-of-ants/ Mon, 18 Jun 2012 22:00:00 +0000 Kerstin Pingel, Dr. Brian L.
