Manufacturer: Leica, ST5010 and CV5030. Installed 2011.

The Leica autostainer provides high quality, consistent staining with improved throughput. The machine can be programmed to run 15 different staining protocols and can accommodate up to 11 staining racks, each holding 30 slides at a time. An adjoining transfer station allows slides to be moved from the Autostainer onto the coverslipper unit, removing the need for manual coverslipping of slides.
