Leica CM1860 UV Sectioning

Leica CM1860 UV Cryostat for Histopathology Laboratory Applications

The Leica CM1860 UV was developed with an emphasis on diagnostic confidence, safety and ergonomics. The high-throughput cryostat creates diagnostic confidence by reliably producing quality sections that help provide an accurate diagnosis.


Staff near the cryostat is protected by the safe, highly effective, ozone-free UVC disinfection and the antimicrobial nano-silver coating, AgProtect, which provides outstanding safety by reducing exposure to surface pathogens.


The unique premium blade holder adds to the personal protection and ergonomics with a designated finger guard, blade ejector and palm rest for brush technique users.


Leica CM1860UV – an oasis of safety and comfort in your laboratory.

Minimized potential biohazardous exposure

Minimized potential biohazardous exposure

UVC disinfection and AgProtect nano-silver coating provide the ultimate protection – both inside the cryochamber and on the outside surfaces - minimizing the contamination risk from infectious material.

Less maintenance - more consistent sections

Less maintenance - more consistent sections

Leica Biosystem's precision microtome with stepper motor makes it easy to obtain consistent high quality cryosections. To save time during cleaning and reduce maintenance, the microtome is completely encapsulated.

Protection and comfort
