DMi1 Inverted Microscope for Cell Culture
Just Right – Smart Choice
The DMi1 inverted microscope supports your specific work routine in your cell culture lab. Its operation is so intuitive, its handling so comfortable that you can fully concentrate on your work. Choose the functions you need, and, if necessary, you can easily add a variety of accessories that are important for your work.
10x to 20x to 40x Phase Contrast With One Hand Move
The DMi1 is easy to use for phase contrast observation.
With 40x PH1 objective from Leica Microsystems you can switch from 10x to 20x to 40x phase contrast by simply swiveling the nosepiece. There is no need to change the light ring in the slider – the PH1 light ring matches all three objectives!
Cost Saving, Color Safe LED Illumination
All DMi1 microscopes feature 5W LED illumination for constant color temperature through all stages of intensity.
The cool LED light provides a perfect climate for delicate live specimens. There are no distortions of the device due to heat, which provides unchanged focus.
Moreover, LED lamps make great economic sense. LED technology and a twohour auto-off-function reduce energy costs. Up to 20 years life cycle (40 working hrs / week) per lamp under regular conditions mean less downtime and low maintenance costs.
A smart sensor integrated in the slider makes sure that the light intensity automatically adjusts between brightfield and phase contrast. This feature protects the eyes, saves time, and adds comfort for the user.
Quick Change From 40 to 50 or 80 Millimeters Working Distance
A wide range of working distances makes the DMi1 the perfect partner for your live cell laboratory. Use the S40 condenser for optimal resolution with slides, petri dishes, multi-well dishes, and most types of flasks: The S40 provides an extra 10 mm of free space by simply moving it up.
When working with taller flasks, simply exchange the S40 for an S80 condenser with a few steps. There is no need to remove the whole illumination arm.
All-In-One Visualization And Data Storage
The DMi1 camera version is an all-in-one solution for image capturing and cell culture documentation. The Leica 12 megapixel Flexacam C1 camera transforms your microscope into a stand-alone digital imaging station with no need for a PC. Simply connect the camera to your microscope, preferred viewing device such as HDMI monitor, and network and start working! Save images directly on a USB stick or to your local network.
The camera is mounted at the back of the stand. No additional trinocular tube is needed, and you will have a clear view and easy access to the working area.
Connect any HDMI monitor to the camera and discuss your observations without need of a PC.
The Leica DMi1 is extremely stable due to its low center of gravity. The use of high-grade materials – almost exclusively metal – also helps avoid vibrations and resulting image blur. A scratch-resistant stage, high quality optical components, and a wide range of accessories promote a long product life with low maintenance costs.
More flexibility and cost savings by using existing Leica components across platforms. The object guide (accessory) allows the use of different holding frames for flasks, dishes, and multi-well plates.
