The Leica CM1510 S Cryostat allows rapid freezing and sectioning multiple thin layers. Time is crucial when sectioning frozen specimens. An actively cooled quick freezing shelf with defrost function and a powerful refrigeration system are provided to get rapid results. In a minimum of time, the specimen can be clamped and oriented with the easy-to-use orientation system. Orientation is rapid and produces top quality sections.

The motorized coarse feed enables rapid trimming. Two different speed settings in each direction are provided for improved efficiency. The actively cooled quick-freezing shelf (-45 °C) with heat extractor allows extremely fast specimen freezing. A manual defrost cycle can be activated whenever necessary.

The perfectly illuminated and insulated cryochamber is easily accessible through a heated sliding window. Ample space is provided for convenient specimen handling.  To ensure protection against injury when changing specimens and/or knives, the Leica CM1510 S Cryostat’s smooth-running handwheel is lockable in the upper position.

All of the equipment we sell is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.

The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
