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: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
