MYcroscopy - Intelligent High-Speed Microscopy
Faster, easier to use, and more precise: the new Leica DM3000 microscope with Intelligent Automation accelerates workflow in clinical laboratories while ensuring a relaxed working posture, resulting in more reliable screening. The Leica DM3000 is the automated version of Leica's new DM Clinical Microscope Series that was successfully launched in autumn 2004. While tailored for the clinical laboratory, the DM3000 is also suitable for biomedical research applications. The DM3000 utilizes the same ergonomic design principles found in the DM Series, allowing users to assume a natural, relaxed posture while working with the microscope, and reducing strain on the shoulders and spine. All operating elements of the microscope are well positioned to ensure minimal strain on the hands, shoulders, and back, even after hours of extended use. The Leica DM3000 supports Leica's Intelligent Automation concept: Users can concentrate fully on the specimen without being distracted by complex microscope settings. A unique feature of the new Leica DM3000 is a toggle mode, which allows the user to quickly switch between any two of the six objectives. The remaining four objectives are still available whenever other magnifications are required. The toggle mode is particularly useful for cytology applications that require frequent switching between 10x and 40x magnifications. Six different objectives can be individually selected using the control buttons ergonomically positioned behind the focus controls. or using an optional foot pedal The Leica DM3000's automated features increase work efficiency and save time. For example, objectives can be changed in only half a second at the touch of a button. The microscope knows the optimal condenser position for each objective. When using 10x or lower objectives, the condenser head automatically swings out and returns into position for higher magnifications. The microscope knows the optimal condenser position for each objective. The microscope also automatically adjusts the light intensity to the requirements of the objective whenever the magnification is changed. Previously used light values are automatically stored for each magnification. The brightness remains constant for the user, which prevents eyestrain from strong changes in light intensity. The DM3000 also features a modern USB2 port for data communication with computers for image processing and other applications.
