Leica Thunder Imaging System with DMI8 Inverted Phase Contrast Fluorescence Trinocular with AFC Microscope

Leica Thunder Imaging System with DMI8 Inverted Phase Contrast Fluorescence Trinocular with AFC Microscope


  • Advance your live cell imaging to 3D: Combine next generation 3D cell culture models with an imaging system that offers great sensitivity, speed, and image quality to advance your live cell imaging to a whole new level of physiological relevance.
  • Investigate tissue in a 3D context: Whether you are investigating neurite projections, the architecture of a brain, or a regenerative response, THUNDER Imager provides you a 3D tissue imaging solution that is both powerful and easy to use.
  • Work effortlessly with model organisms: With THUNDER you can image relatively large model organisms, whether fixed or under physiological conditions (living), to gain insight and better understand their physiological and pathophysiological processes quickly.
  • High performance for 3D biology: THUNDER imaging systems excel due to:
  • Delivery of benchmark performance and first-rate results for your application
  • Real-time removal of out-of-focus blur, thanks to Computational
  • Clearing, now directly in your live preview
  • Ease-of-use, speed, and sensitivity, just like with widefield imaging

Computational Clearing

  • Computational Clearing efficiently differentiates between signal and background by taking the size of the targeted specimen features into account. This approach makes image details immediately visible which formerly were not accessible. Acquire one image and you have stunning results displayed instantly on the screen.
  • Depending on the type of application, the base method can be combined with deconvolution using the Leica decision mask technique. It is fully automated and works independently without manual user input. The technique delivers high quality images at very fast speed.
  • Benefit from:
  • Brilliant results in seconds
  • Instant display of haze-free images during acquisition – no need to wait until the experiment is finished
  • The effective removal of out-of-focus blur, even from single-plane acquisitions
  • An extended range of applications for thick samples
  • Increased statistical significance through background independent quantification
  • Reduced time to result through skipping the post processing step
