Move the slider and experience high contrast and uncompromised resolution at the same time. Operators can now effortlessly see, and capture, the finest details in high resolution.
With the innovative optical design concept of the TL bases from Leica, contrast and high resolution are no longer a trade-off.

TL3000 Ergo from Leica stands for intuitive manual operation. Effortlessly pass through the different contrast options: brightfield, Rottermann contrast, or one-sided darkfield. Fine-tuning of the contrast is easy, and all with just a single knob.
The base is fully coded and compatible with Leica software, so all important imaging parameters are saved with your images. This allows you to use the store & recall function of LAS and LAS X software.
For life science projects the base also offers:
With the TL5000 Ergo you can manage and control all base settings via software for maximum control, whatever your project.
Manual push buttons on the base allow cycling through the different contrasts: brightfield, Rottermann contrast (from North and South), or double-sided darkfield. Fine tune the contrast via PC or manually with the hand-wheel to achieve the desired result. Reproduce imaging conditions from past projects with the store & recall function in the software.
Benefits for high-precision research include:
Leica transmitted light bases have been designed to match the high resolution of our stereo microscopes and macroscopes.
It’s important for a base to fill the aperture of the microscope you are using. The manual TL3000 Ergo provides a maximum NA of 0.73 and the fully automated TL5000 Ergo a NA of 0.9.
With every Leica microscope installed on a TL Ergo base you can expect:
The TL3000 Ergo & TL5000 Ergo use LED illumination for all contrast methods. This guarantees a constant color temperature and offers real color imaging at all intensity levels.
Enjoy evenly illuminated samples thanks to the bright, homogeneous, and color-neutral illumination – independently of the light intensity.
Operators need a large field of view to study entire organisms with high precision. The TL Ergo bases have a large illuminated space of 65 mm allowing to use the full zoom-range even with long working distance objectives.
An ergonomic design and easy-to-use operation concept prevent operator fatigue and assure easy manipulation of the samples.
