The Leica 2800E Frigocut is a microtome cryostat which allows the user to control both the automatic and manual evaporator defrosting. Through its microprocessor controls, the 2800E Frigocut motor drive allows both vertical and horizontal specimen movement and temperature preselection for the specimen as well as the cryochamber.
The Leica SM2500 large-scale, heavy-duty sectioning system is the standard microtome for sectioning hard and/or large-surface specimens. Large specimens up to 250 x 200 mm and hard materials such as bones and teeth embedded in methyl-methacrylate can be sectioned. Typical medical research applications include the sectioning of whole organs such as brain or lung embedded in paraffin.
Laser Microdissection is the contamination-free method for separating and collecting cells of interest out of tissue samples or cell cultures. The isolated pure cell populations are the ideal starting point for specific and meaningful results in your molecular analysis.
