Leica M205 C

The modular Leica M205 C, the world’s first stereo microscope to offer 20.5:1 zoom, resolves structural detail down to 476nm.

Through the simultaneous combination of maximum depth of focus and high resolution, Leica Microsystems’ Fusion Optics™ technology allows the user to clearly see more details of the sample. This fully apochromatically corrected stereo microscope with integrated electronic readout of the magnification is also a perfect imaging system. Capable of performing numerous tasks, the Leica M205 C makes work faster and easier.

  • FusionOptics™

    FusionOptics™ - combines high resolution and depth of field together for ideal 3-D optical image

  • 1x Planapo resolution

    1x Planapo resolution of 0.9 microns produces very detailed images in stereoscopic viewing

  • Apochromatic 20.5:1 zoom

    Fully apochromatic 20.5:1 zoom – provides detailed imaging and reduces the need to change to another instrument

  • Electronic magnification

    Electronic magnification readout allows easy repetition of imaging parameters and analysis

  • Microscope Assistant

    The Leica integrated Microscope Assistant allows you to benefit from the full digital integration of microscope, illumination and microscope camera
