COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS BELOW

 

Steps you take to verify, service, and confirm the functionality of the Leica DM4000 Fluorescence Microscope?

Summary of testing & maintenance we perform (depending on included configuration):

  • Leica DM4000 upright Internal and external optics are inspected and cleaned
  • Mechanical components inspected, adjusted, and lubricated if necessary
  • The proper operation of electronic components is confirmed
  • Any necessary repairs and services completed to make sure the microscope is fully functional
  • Motorized components inspected for worn components, serviced and lubricated if necessary
  • Objectives are inspected to ensure there is no inside dust and a clear image is produced
  • Halogen lamp (if installed) we install a new Halogen bulb 
  • Fluorescence HBO Lamp (if installed) we install a new HBO bulb 
  • If the microscope has a Metal Halide Lamp source, we make sure the bulb has a minimum of 600 hours left on it
  • We inspect image quality of fluorescence images by looking at various fluorescing slide samples
  • Cameras are tested to ensure there is no condensation and they produce a clear image
  • Camera image quality verified

Can you help me identify the best microscope and configuration for me?

We are here to help

  • Contact us with your application; we will help you identify the best microscope configuration.
  • We do not believe in one size fits all approach; you should get a microscope that will do what you need.

Can I view the microscope in person at your facility or do a live Zoom demo before it is shipped to me?

We offer both onsite and remote demos via Zoom

  • We invite you to come in for an onsite or Zoom demo of the microscope
  • On a custom configured microscopes, we generally offer a demo before the microscope is ready to ship out

 What about the warranty?

Our Leica DM4000 upright Fluorescence microscopes come with a 90 Day Warranty.
 

Warranty Terms:

  • The warranty term is 90 Days from the date of the microscope's arrival at the destination.
  • This includes parts and labor.
  • The customer should retain all packing materials during the warranty period. 

 

Exceptions: 

  • The warranty does not cover bulbs except LED (LED lamps are covered)
  • Damage to the objectives or other optical components due to collision with a sample (improper use)
  • Electrical damage to the motorized/electronic components if the microscope plugged into an incorrect voltage

 

 Do you offer installation, service, etc?
  • We offer several remote installation and training packages.
  • We offer an extended warranty agreement on this model.
  • We stock various replacement and upgrade parts, so we may continue to support your microscope.

 

What should I watch out for when buying a Leica DM4000 Fluorescence Microscope used/pre-owned from another lab?

Basic steps to confirm quality:

  • Confirm that internal optics are clean; this is often a complex undertaking, especially complex microscopes with motorized components.
  • Confirm there is no present physical damage to the microscope base
  • Confirm there are no cracked lenses inside the microscope light paths or the base
  • Make sure there are no loose/damaged/seized gears inside mechanical and especially motorized components
  • Make sure a good amount of life left on fluorescence sources and light guides (if present) are damage free 
  • If Microscope has a motorized stage, make sure it does not skip steps and moves freely on all axis
  • Make sure objectives are installed, have been inspected, and have no damage or dust inside
  • Confirm that microscope is configured to your application; any changes later will be expensive
  • Confirm that camera is tested and communicates with the computer producing clear images
  • Make sure there are no missing components; it won`t be fast or inexpensive to correct

 

If you have concerns, we highly recommend either inspecting the microscope in person or doing a live Zoom call; this will allow you to evaluate the microscope and confirm that everything works on it.

 

 Do you have these and other microscopes on hand?
  • Subject to ongoing demand, we usually stock 100 to 150 of ready to go fluorescence microscopes (preconfigured)
  • Generally, we also have 150 to 200 microscopes in the process; those will be configured per the customer’s requirements.
  • We specialize in microscopes from Leica, Zeiss, Nikon, and Olympus.

 

This procurement is for a University or College, are purchase orders with NET terms accepted?
  • If you are a US or Canadian customer very likely we are already a registered and approved vendor in your University's vendor system(that is how many instruments we sold), this will simplify and expedite the process of PO approval.
  • POs are accepted from US and Canadian universities.

 

 How fast will you ship?
  • We can ship within a few days to 2 weeks, depending on your required Leica DM4000 microscope customization.

 

Will my instrument be insured during shipping?
  • All Leica DM4000 Fluorescence Microscopes are shipped fully insured within the US and internationally as long as we are a shipper and handle shipping arrangements.
  • If the buyer handles shipping, then shipping insurance responsibility falls to the buyer; we highly advise that the buyer obtain shipping insurance from their carrier.

 

 How do you pack? Have you packed and shipped microscopes in the past? Do you ship Internationally?

Packing

  • Most microscopes ship in fully enclosed ISPM-15 certified wooden crates, with proper padding underneath and the sides, and have moving components braced.
  • Accessories are packed safely in boxes with padding and then safely packed inside the crate.
  • We may not use a crate for local deliveries or smaller microscopes to save you money *if delivered by us.
  • On the crates, we often use “tilt’ & “shock” indicators to ensure the crate has not been excessively tilted and dropped where equipment may suffer damage.
  • Photos are taken during the packing process to make sure nothing is missed

USA/Canada Shipping

  • Within US and Canada, we will ship via selected freight carriers. We do not use low-price/high-damage carriers as we want the equipment to get safely to you.

International Shipping

  • Internationally we will only ship via Air Freight or Air Parcel, which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
    We have extensive experience shipping microscopes around the world.

Our experience and process

  • We have safely packed and shipped hundreds of complex customized microscopes.
  • Before packing/shipping, the instrument is re-tested, and a procedure is followed to verify the accuracy of included components.

 

How much will I save by buying it pre-owned, and is it worth it?

A lot…and it is certainly worth it, and here is why.  Feel free to ask for feedback from hundreds of customers that bought custom microscopes from us.

  • You will save around 60-80% vs. buying a new microscope.  Spend leftover funds on another instrument for your lab.
  • You will get a 90 days warranty, plus, when available, an option to get an extended warranty agreement. 
  • Many customers choose to invest funds into higher-end cameras that may not otherwise be considered due to cost at new prices.
  • Consider getting a motorized stage, often a $10,000 to $20,000 upgrade, when bought new. Often save over 70% on the stage alone.
  • For many applications, the difference in image quality between the current Leica DM4 microscope and this DM4000 may not make a major difference; instead, get better objectives or camera and have image quality exceed your expectations.
  • You can have Leica DM4000 upright microscope configured to provide excellent viewing/imaging quality for a fraction of the cost

 

Leica DM4000 Upright Fluorescence Microscope is a predecessor model to the Leica DM4 Fluorescence microscope; DM4 could be priced up to $35,000. So why not save your funds by buying Leica DM4000, get the high-quality image quality you expect from Leica, and use your leftover funds elsewhere?
 

 Sustainability
  • Well, this one is easy; buying a pre-owned Leica DM4000 Microscope is great for the planet; you are reducing unnecessary waste, CO2 output, and water use that would be used during the manufacturing process.  

 I have more questions; I want to receive a formal quote.

Absolutely! Please give us a call (1-617-366-2699) or complete this form to get your questions answered or receive a formal Quote.
