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 stepper motor

Exceptionally precise stepper motor promotes the production of high quality sections of consistent thickness.

Fine orientation control

Fine orientation control supports sectioning of delicate tissues.

Optional motorized sectioning

Optional motorized sectioning provides reproducible section quality and thickness and reduces repetitive motion.

Programmable reverse counter

Programmable reverse counter saves time by promoting fast trimming between levels (step sectioning).

Section thickness totalizer

Section thickness totalizer with re-set button facilitates target preparation.
