With motorized z-focus, motorized and coded 7x nosepiece, fully automated transmitted light axis, and fully automated 5x or 8x fluorescence axis, the automated Leica DM6000 B research microscope provides all transmitted light contrast methods including the world’s first fully automated Differential Interference Contrast (DIC).

Unique is the ability to recall a particular contrast method with an objective, i.e., the system can recall DIC in combination with 63x magnification, which provides reproducibility.

The motorized Z drive offers the convenience of automatic parfocality adjustment, saved focus levels, and automated positioning of Z levels.


Automatically the best image

Change contrast methods with one button click: depending on the selected contrast technique and objective, microscope settings set automatically for the best image quality without time-consuming adjustments.

Excellent image quality

The world’s first fully automated DIC: with one touch of a button all system components automatically move into the light path and the fine adjustments for objective prisms are stored for each objective for reproducibility and excellent image quality.

SmartTouch touchscreen

The Leica SmartTouch touchscreen or free programmable function buttons located behind the focus knobs controls the microscope conveniently and intuitively. Additional programmable function buttons are located on the well-known Leica SmartMove remote control and on the external Leica STP6000 SmartTouch Panel control.

Constant Color Intensity Control (CCIC)

The Leica‘s unique and patented CCIC maintains the color temperature at a constant 3200 K when the lamp voltage is changed - the white balance that is normally required for digital camera use is now a thing of a past.
