Leica CM1950 cryostat


The Leica CM1950 is a cryostat with an encapsulated microtome and separate specimen cooling. The displays and instrument controls are easy to operate due to their largely self-explanatory symbols. LED displays make it easy to read. The cryochamber is made of seamlessly welded, high-quality stainless steel that is free of difficult-to-access corners and thus easy to clean and disinfect. 

This cryostat is primarily intended for the users of the laser microdissection system. Other users are also welcome if they keep the necessary cleanliness level and respect that the cryostat has to be absolutely RNAse free.

You have to bring all consumables you need for using the cryostat, e.g. the disposable blades, OCT, cryofect etc. We provide specimen discs but if you want to use the specimen discs outside the facility (i.e at EBM or at your lab) you have to buy your own. For information about the consumables please contact us.
