Leica CM1950 Cryostat

The Leica CM1950 Cryostat provides high-quality sectioning while enhancing workflow and improving user safety. The CryoZone system maintains the ideal object temperature by circulating cool air around the specimen, anti-roll guide, and knife. The Leica CM1950 Cryostat also offers vibration-free sectioning to increase the stability of the high-precision microtome and blade holder system.

The Leica CM1950 Cryostat amplifies workflow efficiency with easy-to-use control panels and programmable specimen orientation. The distinct function keys and clearly readable LEDs prevent operating errors, facilitate cryosectioning, and eliminate the need to scroll through multiple menus. Additionally, the Leica CM1950 offers faster specimen alignment with a customizable zero-position.

The Cryostat focuses on user-safety by preventing contamination with built-in UVC disinfection, ensuring blade-handling safety with the new blade removal aid and colored safety guard, and reducing injuries with rounded edges and glare-free illumination.
