Processing multiple specimens and performing serial cuts can result in high section numbers. Nevertheless, reproducibility can't be compromised. Permanent attention to detail and many hours in front of the cryostat can be exhausting for the user. The Leica CM3050 S cryostat is designed to help with exactly these time-consuming jobs.
The low working height and available knee space of the Leica CM3050 S cryostat allow the user to work comfortably while sitting. Motorized drive and section counter improve productivity for multiple serial sections.
Particularly when working with delicate specimens, e.g. brain samples, the precise specimen orientation and the specimen feed system provide for reproducible sections.

Rankin Refurbishment Process
Every instrument undergoes a systemized, rigorous, down-to-the-frame refurbishment process to rebuild each instrument to its original specifications and intended use.
- Instrument decontaminated
- Preliminary inspection of functionality
- Instrument disassembled down to the frame
- Panels, chassis and internal surfaces stripped and prepped for painting
- Prepared surfaces primed and painted with industrial-quality, chemical-resistant paint.
- Labels replaced to original appearance
Refurbishment & Reassembly
- Mechanical, pneumatic, and electronic assemblies disassembled, cleaned, restored, and reassembled
- Worn assemblies, components and parts replaced with new assemblies, components and parts where needed
- New components and parts can include pumps, motors, heaters, cables, belts, O-rings, diaphragms, gaskets, tubing, touch-pads, bottles, casters, doors, lids, fittings, valves, and other parts
- Instrument reassembled to its original condition in accordance to OEM specifications
Diagnostics & Troubleshooting
- Assemblies function tested and adjusted for proper operation
- Full system diagnostic testing conducted
- System tested for electrical safety
- System successfully calibrated with certified materials to ensure proper functionality
- Quality Control testing conducted on established parameters using certified tools and control material
