New Leica DVM5000 Digital Microscope Delivers Advanced 3D Imaging for QA Teams Inspecting Microelectronics and Medical Devices

Leica Microsystems Focuses on Quality in the Digital Microscope Market

BANNOCKBURN, IL--(Marketwire - September 10, 2010) -  When the demands of quality inspection reach the limits of optical microscopes, digital technology provides QA professionals with the power to take visual analysis to the next level. Now, in addition to its industry-leading lines of compound microscopes and stereomicroscopes, Leica Microsystems offers an innovative series of digital microscopes that bring new levels of flexibility and precision to meet the unique needs of QA professionals inspecting microelectronics and medical devices.

"With the introduction of the Leica DVM5000, QA teams have access to measurement technology that can deliver complex 3D models quickly for more accurate quality analysis and inspection," says Halden Zimmermann, Vice President of Marketing, North America. In addition to the advanced 3D capabilities, the Leica DVM5000 features a 360° rotating head, flexible tilting stand, and a revolving x/y-stage that enable inspection from angles that would be impossible with optical equipment. Plus, the compact, all-in-one system design allows the microscope to be brought to the sample for non-destructive analysis anywhere it's needed. This mobility also lends itself to new workflows that can increase product throughput.

As an added incentive, the launch of the Leica DVM5000 features an exclusive offer where the first 50 customers to receive a demonstration of new digital microscope will receive a free Leica ES2 stereomicroscope. Go to www.leica-microsystems.com/bigpicture to request a demo.
