The motorized Leica CM3050S cryostat, with active specimen cooling, was designed primarily for the demanding needs of cryosectioning systems in the field of biomedical, neuro-anatomical and pharmaceutical research. Particularly when working with large specimens, the precise specimen orientation and the specimen feed system via step motor guarantees reproducible thin serial sections of maximum quality.
