The Leica M530 OH6 takes image quality to a whole new level by combining

FusionOptics  with advanced illumination and apochromatic optics.


Visualize the finest details with FusionOptics

FusionOptics makes the impossible possible: large depth of field and high resolution in one image. This exclusive, groundbreaking technology from Leica Microsystems takes a new approach, utilizing the power of the human brain. First, it captures different information from each of the two beam paths. The left beam path delivers an image with the highest possible resolution and the right beam path provides an image with maximum depth of field. The brain then easily merges both images into a single, optimal spatial image. The astounding result: a significantly expanded area in full focus.

Less refocusing

FusionOptics technology offers a further unique advantage with the potential to streamline your workflow. A larger area in full focus means less time spent refocusing.

FusionOptics helps you to stay focused, in every sense of the word.


FusionOptics Technology

1. Two separate beam paths

2. One beam path provides depth of field

3. The other provides high resolution

4. The brain merges the two images into a single, optimal spatial image

Deep insights

Small Angle Illumination (SAI) combined with bright 400-Watt xenon light provides a concentrated light beam that penetrates to the bottom of deep, narrow cavities.

The result is better illumination with less shadow. SAI provides you with more details and an improved depth perception.

Long working distance.

Decreased working distance at same illumination setting (left) creates burn potential in conventional microscopes.

BrightCare Plus automatically adapts light intensity to the working distance, providing safer illumination (up to 60 % reduction of intensity).

At low magnification, the field of illumination

(yellow) fills the field of view (green) completely.

Previously, as magnification increased, the field of view became smaller, but the illumination outside the field of view could potentially cause tissue burns (red).

AutoIris automat ically works with the zoom, decreasing the field of illumination as the field of view decreases. There is no peripheral illumination to cause tissue burns outside the field of view.

Safe, maximum brightness

Maximum brightness at all times

The efficient light transmission of the Leica

M530 OH6 ensures that the maximum possible amount of light is always being provided.

Therefore, you can operate at safer light levels and still see more than ever before.

Bright 400-Watt Xenon light

Reliable illumination system

The Leica M530 OH6 features two redundant

400 W xenon arc-lamp illumination systems, with independent lamps and boards. In case of lamp or board failure, the microscope automatically switches to the second illumination system.

Separate operating sysetms for video and microcope

Stay operational

To ensure full operability the microscope and the video have fully independent operating systems. In case of a video system failure, the microscope retains full functionality and surgery can continue uninterrupted.
