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.

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

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...
