Leica's DM series of clinical microscopes are well-established in laboratories across the National Health Service. The DM2000 is suited to the bench microscopist wishing to use a uniquely ergonomic microscope for complex clinical applications. The Leica DM2000 is available in two versions, with bright halogen illumination or with long-life LEDs. With their sophisticated modular design and high-performance fluorescence, the Leica DM2000 microscopes are ideal for complex tasks in pathology, cytology, and many other applications. They may be configured with a variety of optics and contrast techniques to meet the specific requirements of demanding applications.
