The Leica CM1900 is a rapid sectioning cryostat for advanced routine diagnostics in histology and clinical histopathology. This Leica cryostat offers extremely rapid specimen freezing and frequent changes in specimen temperature, meeting even the highest demands for smooth operation and enhanced safety.
