Low temperature ultrathin cryosectioning of biological and industrial samples. Can be mounted
on the EM UC7 and the ARTOS 3D. The EM FC7 outfitted with an EM VCT500 transfer port is the ideal solution for environmentally sensitive sample and / or cryogenic sample transfer.
The Leica EM FC7 and Leica EM CRION ionizer controls are both integrated with the Leica EM UC7 control unit to provide easier operation and more workspace.
Using the advanced touchscreen control, three different cryo-modes are available: – Standard
High gas flow – increased GN2 gas flow reduces ice contamination below –140°C
Wet sectioning – to set a temperature difference of up to 130°C between knife (–40°C) and specimen (–170°C), which is useful for, e.g., DMSO applications.
