Leica CM3050 S Research Cryostat

Primarily designed for the demanding needs of cryosectioning in biomedical, neuro-anatomical and pharmaceutical research

The Leica CM3050 S cryostat features superior user comfort with excellent safety standards for practically all types of cryosectioning applications.

It is the instrument of choice for all research applications and for advanced clinical cryosectioning needs.

Particularly when working with delicate specimens – for example brain samples in neuroscience – the precise specimen orientation and the specimen feed system guarantees reproducible, thin, serial sections of maximum quality.

Features

Product Features

Precise - Specimen orientation and specimen feed

The precise specimen orientation and the specimen feed system via step motor allow reproducible thin sections of maximum quality when working with large specimens - for example in Neuroscience.
* Option

User safety - Centering the handwheel handle

During motorized operation, the handle of the handwheel can be centered so that it spins in place instead of rotating in an outward motion.
 
 

Multifunctional - Cabinet height adjustment*

The highly flexible hydraulic cabinet height adjustment gives the user freedom to work comfortably while sitting or standing. All functional keys are easily accessible in any position.

Efficiency - Insulation system

Highly efficient insulating materials enhance the durability of the refrigerating system and support stable cryochamber temperatures, even when producing serial sections all day long.

Efficient - Specimen temperature control

An independant refrigeration system ensures powerful specimen temperature control and rapid temperature changes.

Spacious - Stainless steel cryochamber

The easily accessible cryochamber provides large space for convenient handling and specimen storage.

Functional - The knife holder CE

The lateral displacement feature of the knife holder CE for disposable blades allows the use of the entire blade.

Convenient - Programmable reverse section counter and totalizer

With the reverse section counter a preselected number of sections can be carried out in both sectioning and trimming mode. Section thickness totalizer and counter with reset button facilitates target preparation promoting fast trimming between levels.
