Leica ST5020 Multistainer

The Leica ST5020 Multistainer produces consistent, high-quality results for both routine and special stains and can perform single or multiple protocols at the same time.

In conjunction with the Leica CV5030 Coverslipper, the Leica ST5020 is an exceptionally versatile stainer-coverslipper workstation, that combines high flexibility with safer process execution. As a result, your laboratory benefits from optimized workflow.




Safer Staining Process

Significantly reduce the potential for user errors as Leica Microsystem’s patented Code-Rack™ technology automatically identifies the desired stain protocol for individual racks and automatically starts the correct process.

Simple Programming

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.

Match your Laboratory's Needs

Enjoy flexibility with the multiple bath layout with 40 stations including up to 6 wash stations and up to 4 ovens/slide drying stations.

Saves Costs and Energy

Significantly reduce fume exposure with the easy load and unload draws that hold up to 120 slides.

Consistent Quality and Convenience

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 Surgipath reagents and protocols, ensures superior staining and coverslipping quality.
