The modular Leica M165 C fully apochromatic corrected stereo microscope with 16.5:1 zoom and maximum 906 lp/mm (planapochromatic 2x objective) allows the user to view the smallest detail of the sample and perform a 3-D analysis without changing instruments. The stereo microscope with the comprehensive range of ergonomic accessories, LED based illuminations and application specific software combines flexibility, convenience, and outstanding imaging performance for material testing and life science applications. Resolution at 1.1µm with standard 1x Planapochromatic objective - allows fine detail sample viewing and 3D analysis without changing instruments. The Microscope is currently used for imaging of marine larvae from the whole animal to the cellular level. The microscope is further used to produce specifically designed micro-electrodes to measure H+, Ca2+ and CO32- concentrations in marine larvae.
