Leica CM1510 S Cryostat

The Leica CM1510 S Cryostat is the best value cryostat available for all cryo- and critical applications such as Mohs surgery.

The Leica CM1510 S Cryostat allows rapid freezing and sectioning of skin in multiple thin layers. Time is crucial when sectioning frozen specimens. An actively cooled quick freezing shelf with defrost function and a powerful refrigeration system are provided to get rapid results.

In a minimum of time, the specimen can be clamped and oriented with the easy-to-use orientation system. Orientation is rapid and produces top quality sections.

The motorized coarse feed enables rapid trimming. Two different speed settings in each direction are provided for improved efficiency.

The actively cooled quick-freezing shelf (-45 °C) with heat extractor allows extremely fast specimen freezing. A manual defrost cycle can be activated whenever necessary.

The perfectly illuminated and insulated cryochamber is easily accessible through a heated sliding window. Ample space is provided for convenient specimen handling.

To ensure protection against injury when changing specimens and/or knives, the Leica CM1510 S Cryostat's smooth-running handwheel is lockable in the upper position.
