Leitz Laborlux II – Phase contrast biological microscope in very good condition.

Reference Number: S00116

Leitz (or Ernst Leitz GmbH Wetzlar) is one of the greatest names in microscopy. Today, the company is part of LEICA Microsystems. Leitz is a company with a great history. It started in 1849, when Carl Kellner (1826 – 1855) founded the “Optical Institute” at Wetzlar, Germany. A few years after his death, the company’s name changed into the Leitz Works (Leitz Werke). Since 1869, Ernst Leitz (1843 – 1920) managed the company under his own name. – Over the following decades, Leitz produced very good microscopes. One of the authors (Gregor) tends to believe that this extreme devotion to quality was Leitz’s major problem. After all, once a research group purchased the legendary Leitz Ortholux, they had no need to ever replace this unit. The Ortholux most likely outlasted the demands of the lengthiest research project and, if not abused, it should still be able to serve us well today. With the Orthoplan-Pol this situation did not get any better. The first Orthoplan3 microscopes were built so well, the company actually lost money selling them. This is not exactly a business model that guarantees prosperity. – Sadly, all microscope makers have since learnt from this and made microscopes more “profitable”.
