Leica CM1860 UV

Cryostat for Histopathology Laboratory Applications
The Leica CM1860 UV was developed with an emphasis on diagnostic confidence, safety and ergonomics. The high-throughput cryostat creates diagnostic confidence by reliably producing quality sections that help provide an accurate diagnosis. Staff near the cryostat is protected by the certified UVC disinfection, that efficiently reduces pathogen contamination, including SARS-CoV-2. The antimicrobial nano-silver coating, AgProtect, provides outstanding safety by reducing exposure to surface pathogens. The unique premium blade holder adds to the personal protection and ergonomics with a designated finger guard, blade ejector and palm rest for brush technique users.

Minimized potential biohazardous exposure

Certified UVC disinfection reduces the risk of contamination by infectious material.

AgProtect, an antimicrobial nano-silver coating on the instrument housing, reduces the risk of touch contamination. The nano-silver in AgProtect works by penetrating the membranes of microbes to prevent replicatio

Less maintenance - more consistent sections


Protection and comfort

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 UV cryostat provides you with designated storage shelves for samples, object holders, tools and an easily accessible ambient temperature storage on top of the instrument.

The well-organized work space

The Leica CM1860 UV cryostat 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.
