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 Sakura
cannot be beat, but that the tape is very expensive.  If you need to use
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?
