"I have used 10 of these instruments running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 3 years. They work well and rarely have any problems."
The Leica DM6000 B is a fully automated upright microscope system for cutting-edge life science research. Featuring a motorized z-focus, motorized and coded 7x nosepiece, fully automated transmitted light axis, and fully automated 5x or 8x fluorescence axis.
The Leica DM6000 B research microscope provides all transmitted light contrast methods including the world's first fully automated Differential Interference Contrast. The unique ability to recall a particular contrast method with an objective (for example: the system can recall DIC in combination with 63x magnification) provides reproducibility and saves time.
The motorized stage and focus drive offers the convenience of automatic parfocality adjustment, saved focus levels, and automated positioning of Z levels for multi-positioning and deconvolution. Deconvolution functionality provides increased in-focus, thru-focus fluorescence image resolution for sharp/clear publication quality images.
