New high-performance surgical microscope for opthalmic surgery

16.11.2005



Leica M820 F19: Best vision counts

The year comes to a close – but not the innovative power and the ambition of Leica Microsystems to provide perfect solutions to the challenges of ophthalmic surgery. The new Leica offers users all the high-performance features of the 8-series surgical microscopes, thereby meeting highest opthalmic requirements.

High performance that is easy to operate



The new high-performance microscope combines premium optical components and easy, comfortable use. The F19 stand features precise mechanical breaks that ensure consistent motion and firm positioning of the entire microscope system at the same time.

Finest optics & lighting

The Leica M820 F19 with the original APO-OptiChromeTM optics offers the best view based on a dual zoom system, maximum resolution, outstanding plasticity, brilliant depth of focus, high contrast and natural, true colors. Additionally, the original direct halogen light provides a bright & homogenously illuminated image. The unique double beam stereo illumination provides the surgeon with a steady red reflex and a three-dimensional image.

Simply functional

Ingenious functions for smooth procedures in the OR: the "Two-in-One-Screen" acts as a control unit and video display in one. More than 30 individual settings can be entered simultaneously – the current operation can be shown with only one touch of a button. Clever operation of the "Step CycleTM’" saves time: individual users can save zoom, focus, and light values, which are accessed at the touch of a button. If the microscope is placed in the top vertical position after surgery, the "Auto Reset" function will reset all start settings to zero.

Ergonomics & flexibility from A to Z

The term "Leica ErgonOpticTM" stands for a wide array of binocular tubes that meet the various requirements of every surgeon and assistant. This remarkable system, including a footswitch with either 16 or 12 functions, creates best conditions for an ergonomic workspace without fatiguing. The adjustable Leica Zoom Video Adapter always provides the surgeon and his team with the right picture. High-resolution documentation systems such as the Leica D2D V3 video and photo system, the precise Leica slit lamp, and the integration of the Oculus SDI/BIOM 3c wide angle observation system, as well as several laser systems give the Leica M820 F19 flexibility and versatility for any application.

Leica Microsystems is a leading global designer and producer of innovative high-tech precision optics systems for the analysis of microstructures. It is one of the market leaders in each of the fields Microscopy, Imaging Systems, Specimen Preparation, Medical Equipment and Semiconductor Equipment. The company manufactures a broad range of products for numerous applications, which require either microscopic visual presentation, measurement, analysis or electron-beam lithography. The company offers system solutions in the areas of Life Science including biotechnology and medicine, as well as the science of raw materials, industrial quality assurance and the semiconductor industry. The company is represented in over 100 countries with 10 manufacturing facilities in 6 countries, sales and service organizations in 19 countries and an international network of dealers. With its workforce of about 3,700 employees it made a turnover of 530m euros in 2004. The international management is headquartered in Wetzlar, Germany.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
