Leica DVM6 M Digital Microscope

If you work in quality control/assurance, failure analysis, research, and development, or in forensics, searching for the detail can take up a lot of your time in microscopy.

The Leica DVM6 digital microscope is fast, reliable and easy to use for every user. It is the perfect solution that combines outstanding optics, intuitive operation and smart software to save you time.

With the DVM6, you can get from the big picture to the smallest details in an instant. You can seamlessly carry on working even if changing objective is required, as the sample always stays in focus and no pre-adjustments are needed. And, it's easy to use with the one-handed operation for objective changes, focus, and stage movement.

Image quality is impeccable using famous Leica PlanAPo optics, a high-resolution camera, and LED illumination options that produce excellent contrast on any sample. Three objective options get you from 12X to 2350X magnification at 425nm resolution.

The DVM6 offers 2D and 3D images, manual and motorized stage for automated image stitching, 2D and  3D measurement, in an easy to use and flexible platform.

If your sample is too large or bulky for the standard Leica DVM6 configurations, the modular DVM6 M offers you more configuration flexibility for a wide range of applications.
