Efficient High Throughput Automation: Leica ST5020-CV5030 Stainer and Coverslipper Workstation

The Leica ST5020 Stainer/TS5025 Transfer Station/CV5030 Coverslipper Workstation represents a cutting-edge automated system, perfectly suited for demanding high-throughput applications. Engineered for seamless efficiency, this bench-top powerhouse can simultaneously process 12 slide racks containing 30 slides each. It facilitates continuous rack loading/unloading via up to 4 load/unload stations without the need to open the instrument lid. Out of the 36 reagent vessels available, 6 can serve as water baths, with one possessing a separate connection for distilled water.

Simultaneous Staining Excellence:

With the Leica ST5020 Stainer/TS5025 Transfer Station/CV5030 Coverslipper Workstation, multiple staining programs can be executed concurrently. The integrated reagent management feature monitors reagent cleanliness in real-time to ensure optimal staining outcomes. Streamlining the process, color-coded slide rack clips (transponders) enable fully automatic staining. An informative status table showcases active stainings, while any potential waste-water tray overfill prompts an audible alarm and automatic supply water valve closure. Moreover, the workstation prioritizes user safety by incorporating an integrated suction/fume control system with an activated carbon filter to mitigate exposure to hazardous fumes.

Intuitive User Interface and Customization:

Programmed through a solvent-resistant color touch screen, the Leica Multistainer embraces user-friendliness. Its intelligent multi-language interface and graphical program display rapidly familiarize operators with its operation. Online help accompanies each menu step, enhancing ease of use. Data management is effortless, thanks to memory card-based saving and loading, with a permanent memory that accommodates up to 25 programs comprising 40 steps each. Versatility abounds, with selectable incubation periods ranging from 1 second to 1 hour and customizable specimen agitation settings encompassing number, speed, and amplitude.

Expanded Possibilities and Full Automation:

A host of supplementary options enrich the Leica ST5020-CV5030 system’s capabilities. It seamlessly connects to the Leica CV5030 coverslipper, enabling automated coverslipping immediately post-staining. Specialized vessel inserts with reduced reagent volume and small slide racks cater to unique staining needs. Additionally, the system accommodates oven modules, with each module containing 2 ovens for de-paraffining (maximum 70 °C). The flexibility extends to heatable reagent vessels, attaining temperatures of up to 70 °C.

Complete Walk-Away Solution:

Unified by the Leica TS5025 Transfer Station, the Autostainer XL ST5020 and the CV5030 Coverslipper coalesce into a fully automated, “walk-away” solution. This integration optimizes the automatic staining and coverslipping process, drastically reducing hands-on time within the laboratory. Elevate your lab’s productivity and precision with the advanced Leica ST5020-CV5030 Stainer and Coverslipper Workstation, a testament to innovation and efficiency in automated workflows.
