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: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
