Leica Biosystems CM1850 UV


CM1850 UV

The Leica CM1850 UV is equipped with an optimized refrigeration system to provide short specimen freezing times. 
The cryochamber can be quickly and effectively disinfected at any time with ultra-violet light (UVC) for increased operator safety. UV surface disinfection significantly reduces the danger of infection from bacteria, spores and viruses. 
The antimicrobial nano-silver coating, AgProtect, provides outstanding protection by reducing exposure to surface pathogens. AgProtect covers the cryostat’s outside surfaces and protects individuals in the work area by penetrating the membranes of microbes to prevent replication.

Minimize contamination risk 
UVC light and antimicrobial, nano-silver coating work to minimize contamination risk from infectious material to protect laboratory personnel. 
Arranged user interface 
Logically and ergonomically arranged user interface means a shorter learning curve and fewer operating errors. 
Fast and smooth 
Fast and smooth specimen orientation with zero-position centering. 
Coarse feed motorized 
Coarse feed motorized in two speeds in each direction allows fast approach of the specimen to the knife, which saves time, especially when used during trimming.
