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: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
