Leica ST5020 Minimizes User Errors

Significantly reduce the potential for user errors with the CodeRack technology which automatically identifies the desired stain protocol for individual racks and automatically starts the correct process.

Simple Programming from Leica

Operational safety is enhanced by the Smart Graphical User Interface featuring intuitive software visualization with a color TFT touch-screen, multilingual software, and context-sensitive online help. Enjoy flexibility with the multiple bath layout with 40 stations including up to 6 wash stations and up to 4 ovens/slide drying stations.

The Leica ST5020 offers superb User Safety

Significantly reduce fume exposure with the easy load and unload drawers that hold up to 120 slides. The Leica ST5020 has self-contained fume containment built-in, using an activated charcoal filter that is to be replaced every 3-6 months depending on usage.

Consistent Staining Quality and Convenience on the ST5020

The Leica ST5020 reagent management system (RMS) helps to monitor reagent expiration, reagent rotation and stain quality. As a result: Reagent changes minimize disruptions to workflow and reduce delays. The RMS in conjunction with validated Leica Biosystems reagents and protocols ensures superb staining and coverslipping quality.

What a refurbished Leica ST5020 slide stainer means to us

What’s replaced

Our refurbished Leica slide stainers come standard with new acrylic lids, drive cables, o-rings, gas struts, water lines, drain hose, reservoir labels, carbon filters, power cords, adjustable feet, staining reservoirs, and any underperforming electronics. Our professional refurbishment begins with a complete teardown of the machine. We then perform a rebuild of all sub-assemblies, replacing all of the parts known to fail.

Reassembly and Testing

We then reassemble the machine, and begin the testing phase. Thorough testing is completed with mock staining runs. Our quality control process ensures that every Leica ST5020 stainer is functioning at OEM specifications. This is how we are able to reset the lifespan of the Leica ST5020 slide stainer, providing a like-new slide stainer both functionally and cosmetically, giving your histology lab many years of reliable service.


All of our refurbished instruments come standard with a 1-year warranty that backs parts, labor, and service technician travel – the same warranty that you get if you were purchase the instrument brand new.
