Slide strainer 

The Leica CV5030 fully automated glass coverslipper produces slides with superior optical quality for reliable long-term storage. Its capability of handling a large variety of slide racks from different suppliers makes the Leica CV5030 very flexible. All common mounting media, including xylene-free varieties, can be used. The operator can choose wet or dry coverslipping. The CV5030’s performance achieves three goals: Highly consistent and reliable coverslipping quality, full adaptation to individual laboratory set-ups, integration into staining/coverslipping workstations to form a fully automated walk-away system.

Leica CV5030 coverslipper sucking air
I am looking for a service manual, or information. A customer has a Leica CV5030 that has been observed drawing xylene and air up the dispense tube, back into the mountant bottle. I am assuming that either a solenoid(s) has stuck, causing it to be in a "degas" mode when the customer is trying to prime it or dispense.Reply
