Ergonomically designed workstations have been proven to increase performance and the quality of work results. Leica microscope systems’ many years of experience in ergonomics is evident in the Leica A60: the 38° viewing angle is close to a person’s natural head posture. The zoom and focus knobs could not be more accessible; the rheostat of the focus drive can be adjusted to the preferences of a specific user. The operating elements of the ring illuminator are also intuitive and easily accessible, by left and right-handed users. The A60 has a large overview with a 46mm object field with approximately 100% greater depth of field and the working distance is 122mm.
