Leica Microsystems: Automated Mircroscopes
June 4, 2001
Leica Microsystems has introduced its newest generation of automated microscopes, the DM RXA2 and DM RA2. Objective selection, illumination intensity, focusing, aperture setting and fluorescent filter position (up to eight) can be controlled with a separate satellite remote control unit that can be conveniently placed on either side of the microscope. Application-specific microscope configuration and integration into system solutions are easily facilitated because the supply and control electronics are housed in a separate electronics box. Accommodating the electronics separately also prevents thermal transfer and electronic noise at the microscope, which is particularly important for long experiments.
