- WLL / laser class 3B/ IIIb
- 592 STED laser /  laser class 4/ IV
- Argon laser / laser class 3B/ IIIb

2. Leica SP8 (laser class 3B/ IIIb device in accordance with IEC/EN 60825-1 )
- 405nm / laser class 3B/ IIIb
- 488nm / laser class 3B/ IIIb
- 564nm / laser class 3B/ IIIb
- diode laser(633nm) / laser class 3B/ IIIb


Regarding lasers class IV:

 "Class IV—High Power Laser, whose beam is, by definition, a safety and fire hazard. Take precautions to prevent exposure to direct and reflected beams. Diffuse as well as specular reflections cause severe skin or eye damage. Danger! " (ref.)
