The Leica-Microsystems DM2500 microscope present in room HG01.235 is an upright microscope equipped for imaging in transmission (bright field, phase-contrast [10-100x], dark-field [from 10-40x]) and fluorescence mode. Objectives with magnification 2.5, 10, 20, 40 and 100x are available. Images can be recorded with a DCF7000T Leica sensitive color camera (up to 1920x1440 pixels) that can be operated for bright-field, but also fluorescence, phase-contrast and dark-field wide-field microscopy. Freely definable ROIs in combination with binning are possible. Other functions beside simple acquisition of images involve image averaging, shading corrections,sharpening with active noise reduction, white and black balance, HDR acquisition, time lapse imaging and streaming mode.
The camera works together with the LASX software. The modules for image overlays, time-lapse and video streaming are present.
