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.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
