Leica M844 F19: Little sister – superb performance

22.07.2005



The Leica M844 F40, premium surgical microscope for ophthalmology,
welcomes a new member to the family


Leica Microsystems is continuing the market launch of the Leica M844 F40 with another highlight. Just like its older sister, which made its international debut in April, the Leica M844 F19 impresses the user thanks to the same first-class optics (M844). The new F19 stand is equipped with high-precision mechanical brakes which ensure homogeneous movements and stable positioning of the complete microscope system.


Optical strength is our strength

The Leica M844 F19 also contains the high-quality optical components of the M844 F40: the original APO OptiChrome™ optics provide maximum resolution, enormous plasticity, outstanding depth of field, high contrast and natural colour fidelity. QuadZoomTM, the zoom system with four parallel beam paths, provides the surgeon with undivided light – independent of the assistant and video system. The new “Depth Enhancer” creates impressive depth of field. The degree of depth of field can be adjusted easily using either the footswitch or the control unit.

Slim design & homogenous movement control

The small stable foot with easy-running, lockable casters ensures convenient positioning in the operating room thanks to an ergonomic handle. The new F19 stand with 3 mechanical brakes can be easily and precisely moved in all application areas, thus permitting a stable work position.

Convenience & user-friendliness

The many new functions and settings of the Leica M844 F40 are also available to the user in the new Leica M844 F19. The accustomed convenience for the user is provided by features such as the new “Two-in-One display control unit”, the clever ”StepCycle™“ function, the wide range of “ErgonOpticsTM” modules, the exclusive “UltraLowTM II” tube, the practical “side-to-side quick change for the assistant“, the “Intelligent Set-Up System” (ISUSTM) and the always ready-to-start “Auto-Reset“ function.

The new Leica M844 F19 is uncompromising in terms of optical quality, user-friendliness and accessories. It combines the unique features of the Leica M844 microscope with the stability of a stand operated by mechanical brakes, thus making it an attractive alternative for smaller budgets.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
