Leica Biosystems - Advancing Cancer Diagnostics, Improving Lives

Our Vision

Enabling clinicians to efficiently provide patients a highly confident diagnosis within 24-hours from biospy

Leica Biosystems is a global leader in workflow solutions and automation, integrating each step in the workflow. As the only company to own the workflow from biopsy to diagnosis, we are uniquely positioned to break down the barriers between each of these steps.




An accurate diagnosis relies on precise sections. Precise sections rely on the right type of microtome or cryostat. Our history of pioneering microtomy continues to deliver a diverse range of microtomes and cryostats that deliver high-quality sections for any application.



When you are responsible for patient tissue, you need a consumables solution that you trust. From specimen collection to grossing, cassettes to base molds – Leica Biosystems consumables and laboratory supplies are the quality choice for all aspects of tissue-based pathology.


Tissue Processing

You only get one chance to process specimens correctly, but patients need a fast turnaround to end their anxious wait. Leica Biosystems' tissue processors help you simultaneously increase throughput with built-in quality, reliability and tissue protection.



Specimen Identification

Mix-ups can lead to misdiagnosis. Make sure you know the identity of every specimen in your laboratory. Leica Biosystems helps you create a secure link between each patient and every sample.  Chose high-efficiency cassette and slide labelers or manage your workflow with a tailored sample tracking system.  We can help ensure you always link every container, cassette and slide to the correct case and the right patient.




An accurate diagnosis relies on great sections and great sections rely on careful embedding. Leica embedding solutions help you ensure correct tissue orientation, avoid heat damage, and create the ideal block shape.


Routine Stainers and Coverslippers

Versatile by design, our staining workstations are adaptable to meet the needs of different laboratories, providing workflow consolidation and optimization. Both the ST5010 and ST5020 are available as stand-alone instruments or as workstation solutions combining a routine stainer with a glass coverslipper.

Routine Stains

The Surgipath range includes a variety of H&E, secondary/counter and special stains which are specially formulated to enable you to produce a crisp, well-delineated slide for diagnosis. Validated staining protocols are available for both the Leica ST5010 and ST5020 workstations.

Special Stains

For special stain procedures, Leica Biosystems large selection of kits provides optimized convenience and ensures superior staining, consistency and reproducibility. Validated staining protocols are available for use with the Leica ST5020 workstation and the ST5020 H Special Staining Module, where applicable.

BOND IHC/ISH Instruments

Patients rely on IHC and ISH slides for definitive answers. Don’t keep them waiting. With quality, efficiency and total tissue care, BOND helps you complete more slides, with high-definition staining and minimal tissue loss.

Novocastra Reagents

Optimized Novocastra BOND reagents create clarity, provide exceptional quality and reduce the time associated with preparing antibodies. The Novocastra reagents are extensively tested in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue, so you can be sure of the robust consistency that pathologists rely on.

Novocastra HD

Trust the "HD" difference.  Deliver high quality, reliable staining for accurate diagnosis and optimal patient care. Each antibody in the range has been independently evaluated* by external QA, NordiQC, in comparison with equivalent products from other vendors. The range has been optimized to deliver high-quality staining, for results you can trust. 

Aperio Digital Pathology

The Aperio ePathology solutions enable greater access for Pathologists through whole slide scanners, Network solutions that enable remote, real-time viewing, and Precision image analysis solutions to improve clinical productivity, reproducibility, and consistency.

Clinical Microscopy

Optical excellence for diagnostic confidence. With a long standing pedigree of optical excellence, excellent build quality and ergonomics,  Leica Biosystems Clinical Microscopy ensures highest diagnostic confidence while also driving workflow efficiency.


CytoVision is an image analysis and case management system that provides cytogenetic and FISH laboratories with an integrated, scalable platform for brightfield and fluorescent samples which can help improve efficiencies and reduce reporting times; It is scalable from stand-alone capture stations for karyotyping and FISH, to fully automated unattended metaphase and cellular FISH capture.
