This new anti-roll system for cryomicrotomy consists of two components: a reusable metal frame and a glass insert. All four edges of the new glass insert can be used. The glass edges are manufactured using a special procedure to make the edges more durable. The back of the metal frame is equip ed with spacers to ensure optimum distance to the knife holder for high quality sectioning without manual adjustments.
     Effective immediately, all Leica cryostats are equipped with a new glass anti-roll system for Leica CE disposable blade knifeholders and Leica CN steel knifeholders. Customers with existing CE and CN cryostat knifeholders, manufactured from 1996 to today, can upgrade their cryostats to the new system.
