We use the Leica CV5030 the advantage of it is that it can be attached to
their Auto stainer providing continuous workflow as rack and coverslip 30
slides per run, without the need to physically transfer slides rack between
the autostainer and coverslipper or used as a stand alone coverslipper if
needed, though at time it can be problematic.

For a start glass cover slip must be kept at 37 oC prior use otherwise they
tend to stick to each others.
Also does not recognised all the slides type unless they are Leica one, or
the coverlslipper as been calibrated to use a specific slides type.

In the past I used the Sakura Acetate film coverslipper, and their were no
major problem with it though remounting section was a very tedious process.
