Leica Microsystems has introduced a new version of its research microscopy software LAS AF 3 (Leica Application Suite Advanced Fluorescence).
The LAS AF 3 features a modern user interface optimized for fluorescence imaging. It reduces stray light from the computer screen disturbing light-sensitive experiments. The wizard-based interface guides users through data recording and evaluation. The software offers full control over the microscope hardware, while minimizing user interaction through automation. Matching DIC prisms are moved into the light path when changing objectives; in fluorescence mode the DIC prisms are removed from the light path to obtain best image quality. System parameters can be reloaded and applied to future experiments for reproducibility.
