I'm not Jeannine, but having just had both coverslippers in for demo, 
I can answer this!!! You need a GOOD glass coverslip, such as Richard 
Allen Signature series and a good mounting media. Again Richard Allen 
was recommended, but we used Cytoceal XYL with success. The rep 
assured me that with a little TLC the glass coverslipper would perform 
very well. j

Do you know if there are specific glass coverslips that need to be 
used on the Leica?  Is there much breakage and bubbling using 
automated glass coverslippers.  We use the Sakura (plastic) on our 
histology slides and are more than pleased with the coverslipper. 
 However, we will be  using the Leica glass coverslipper in the future 
for our cytologies since we are going to an automated screening 
system.   Apparently this system is very sensitive to small air 
bubbles and imperfect coverslipping. Thanks, Pat Karlisch

It depends on what you need.  For ease of use I've been told that the 
cannot be beat, but that the tape is very expensive.  If you need to 
glass coverslips the Leica is your best bet.

If you had to choose between the Leica CV 5000 vs the Sakura auto
coverslipper, which would you choose and why?
