Leica XL Stand

Modular stand allows inspection of large samples at high stereoscopic magnifications

Document with less effort for RA/QA compliance

A proficient documentation workflow can also help you to adapt and comply more easily with RA/QA requirements. They are becoming ever stricter for  medical device and instrument manufacturing. Leica imaging solutions allow you to obtain reliable, reproducible results handily, giving you peace of mind during documentation.

Report generation with Leica software

As an example, measurements on images of bone screws and a fixation plate have been made with the software Leica Application Suite (LAS) X. A report of the results can be quickly generated for documentation with one click using a customizable template.

For more details on measuring and documenting with LAS X, refer to our report Inspecting and Analyzing Printed Circuit Boards Quickly and Reliably with a Digital Microscope.

Be confident in the image data, perform reliable inspection

Our imaging systems use award-winning optics and high resolution digital cameras, so they produce distortion free images.

Such image data is a big advantage for reliable and efficient documentation necessary for medical device and instrumentation manufacturing.

Generally, optics can have these types of aberration which require correction:

  • monochromatic (independent of the light’s wavelength [color]), such as astigmatism, coma, and field curvature
  • chromatic (dependent on the light’s wavelength).

Our planapochromatically corrected optics are of the highest class providing flawless images. In addition, Leica digital microscope cameras use sensors with up to 10 megapixels and a live image recording rate of up to 37 frames per second.

For more details, refer to Leica objective lenses and optics.
