Instruments for cellular sample preparation

Automated high-pressure freezer

Instrument: Leica EM-HPM100
Application: Cryo-fixation of biological sample under high pressure (2000 Bars).

Automated freeze substitution machine

Instrument: Leica EM-AFS2 + EM-FSP
Application: Freeze substitution process or Progressive Lowering of Temperature (PLT) for ambient or low-temperature embedding of sample, manually or automated with the FSP robot.


Instrument: Leica EM-UC7 + EM-FC7
Application: Ultra-thin sectionning of embedded biological samples, at room temperature or in cryo-conditions.

Automated immuno-labeling machine

Instrument: Leica EM-IGL
Application: Automated staining or immuno-labelling steps on samples on grids (single particles or sections).
