Leica DMi1 microscopes feature 5W LED illumination for constant color temperature through all stages of intensity.The cool LED light provides a perfect climate for delicate live specimens. There are no distortions of the device due to heat, which provides unchanged focus.

  • A wide range of working distances makes the Leica DMi1 the perfect partner for your live cell laboratory.
  • A smart sensor integrated in the slider makes sure that the light intensity auto-matically adjusts between brightfield and phase contrast. This feature protects the eyes, saves time, and adds comfort for the user.
  • Easily Accommodate flasks, dishes and multi-well plates. Two condenser option offers 40 to 50mm or 80mm working distance.
  • Save money with LED technology.
  • Add digital imaging for documentation purposes only if needed



The Leica DM IL LED is exceptionally well-suited for uses ranging from various cell and tissue culture examinations in life sciences, developmental biology studies or micromanipulation in cell biology to living cell examinations in transgenics or electrophysiology.

  • Phase contrast is used primarily in live cell microscopy to make structures in unstained specimens visible. Three preadjusted light rings on a slider allow phase contrast for all objectives from 5x to 63x.
  • IMC creates relief-type images and has proven to be an alternative to Differential Interference Contrast (DIC), particularly in micromanipulation. The IMC developed by Leica Microsystemsdoes not require special objectives because the IMC modulator is not integrated into the objective, but operated via a separate slider.
  • Incident-light fluorescence is an integral part of the Leica DM IL LED Fluo microscope variant. The fluorescence slider holds three filter blocks. The transmitted light method and fluorescence can be used simultaneously.



The Leica DMi8 takes you beyond configuration restrictions. With the freedom of a completely modular system, you can create the perfect system for your research. For 3D images, you can integrate a motorized focus into a manual system. Or if you want multi-color images, start with a motorized filter wheel and manual focus. With hundreds of possible combinations, you can create the best solution for your work.

    • The Leica DMi8 features a new Closed Loop Focus with 20 nm positional accuracy. Combined with an increased travel range of 12 mm, the Leica DMi8 offers high precision 3D image reconstruction of large tissues and complete organisms. High quality data with unprecedented accuracy with this innovation.
    • Open to even more possibilities, the Leica DMi8 features an additional incident illumination port. The Infinity Port provides unmatched flexibility along with the highest optical performance.
    • This novel design facilitates the integration of additional fluorescence light sources and  laser systems for advanced applications like FRAP, photo-switching, ablation, tweezing, optogenetics, and many more.
