Leica CM1860 – Cryostat

Routine Histopathology Applications

In-surgery cancer diagnostics relies on reproducible section quality within minutes. The Leica CM1860 cryostat gives you the confidence to consistently produce quality sections.

The Leica Premium blade holder helps to prevent cutting injuries by minimizing direct contact with the blade.

  • Reduce risk of cutting injuries

A designated finger guard on the Leica Premium blade holder covers the blade when you’re not sectioning. The Leica Biosystems blade ejector and magnetic brush enable you to safely remove the blade from the blade holder without touching it.

  • Consistently produce quality sections

The Leica Biosystems precision microtome helps you to consistently produce quality sections. The microtome is encapsulated, thus providing for easy cleaning and maintenance.

Staying organized helps you staying focused on the sectioning job at hand. The Leica CM1860 provides you with designated storage shelves for samples, object holders, tools and an easily accessible ambient temperature storage on top of the instrument.

  • Ready for multiple users

The Leica CM1860 is designed to facilitate quick turnaround when used by multiple users. No need to adjust the instrument before starting your work.

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.
