Leica DM500

“Science Teaching Made Easy”

The Leica DM500 microscope was specifically developed to revitalize science teaching and to achieve the goal of more hands-on time for Life science courses. 

With many student-friendly features and high-quality construction, the Leica DM500 invigorates science learning and teaches the next generation of scientists effectively and efficiently. 

The Leica DM500 is ideal for first level Life Science courses. The microscope’s stand features provide “plug and play” capability. All students need to do is turn the power on, place the specimen slide on the stage, focus, and enjoy the view!
