The Leica CM1950 Cryostat design is the result of extensive customer consultations.

The Leica CM1950 is a highly adaptable platform that can be tailor-made for each laboratory. By starting with the standard instrument and choosing from a range of options, every laboratory can have THE clinical cryostat for their individual needs.

Innovation and human-oriented features provide a cryostat with a new level of performance.

Advantages of the CM1950
• UVC disinfection minimizes risk of contamination by infectious material.
• AgProtect, an antimicrobial, nanosilver coating on all outside surfaces also minimizes contamination risk.
• Optional section waste removal system provides a safer environment using a concealed primary filter system for solid waste and a bacterial (HEPA) filter for air.
• Optional vacuum assisted sectioning makes sectioning easier.
• New disposable blade holder with dovetail mounting plate and knife holder base provides larger clamping surface and working distance and supports reproducible section quality.
