Features

Product Features

Consistently produce quality sections

The Leica Biosystems precision microtome helps you to get quality sections consistently. To provide easy cleaning and maintenance, the microtome is encapsulated.

Less maintenance - more consistent sections

Fast and easy specimen orientation

The object head orientation, with zero-position centering, allows you to mount the specimen at the desired angle for sectioning. Its easy handling helps you accomplish your sectioning work in time.

Staying organized and staying focused

The Leica CM1520 cryostat provides you with designated storage shelves for samples, object holders, tools and an easily accessible ambient temperature storage on top of the instrument. Staying organized helps you staying focused on the sectioning job at hand.

Easy to learn and easy to remember

Single function keys and easily readable LED displays provide all relevant functions literally at the "push of one button”. No need to scroll through multiple long menus.

Reduce biohazardous exposure

AgProtect, an antimicrobial nano-silver coating on the instrument housing, reduces the risk of touch contamination. The nano-silver in AgProtect works by penetrating the membranes of microbes to prevent replication.
