Microscope Maker Improves Ergonomics

Microscope manufacturer Leica Microsystems recently expanded its clinical microscope line with a more ergonomic offering, the Leica DM1000.


According to the manufacturer, the DM1000 was designed for custom-configurations and user comfort, while maintaining a small footprint.


Users can control key interface points, says Leica, including knob height (arms and wrist comfort), low stage controls (shoulder comfort), and the tilt and extensions of the viewing tubes.  Additionally, the model features brightness-synchronized optics for clear, sharp images without adjusting light intensity.
