The new dimension of vision

By Joseph Allbeury

Microscopes New Products

High performance combined with ergonomic operation and sophisticated aesthetic and functional design characterize the new Leica M320 F12 operating microscope from Leica. For the first time, the microscope's optics are combined with LED illumination with the result being absolutely crisp, clear and bright images with amazing depth of field.

Daylight-temperature LEDs provide high fidelity image colors and with an operational product life of 60,000 hours, the cost of operation is low. LEDs have no start-up delay: when switched on, they instantly deliver full light output.

In addressing the requirements of surgeons, Leica Microsystems also focused on ease of use and maneuverability. With sophisticated engineering and a vibration-minimized bearing, the microscope can be effortlessly positioned anywhere.

The Leica M320 F12 can also be optionally equipped with Leica Microsystems' HD image technology. The video and still cameras are fully integrated with the microscope and provide high quality images that can be displayed on an HD monitor or saved onto an SD memory card. Thus, surgeons can explore entirely new documentation, presentation and consultation opportunities.

The Leica M320 F12 is virtually jointless, which makes it resistant to contaminants and easy to clean. All cables are internally routed. The surface is protected with a permanent antimicrobial coating AgProtect.

Dentists will be impressed by the intelligent design and the efficiency of the LED illumination. They will also appreciate the fact that the Leica M320 F12 offers premium quality for an affordable price.
