Optical Clearing

The process of making organs and tissues transparent is called Optical Clearing, and is aimed to enable deeper imaging into large tissues (up to centimeters).

We provide assistance and service for clearing tissues with common techniques, among which the most commonly used in our facility are:

- Murray's clear and derivatives: Dehydration + BABB etc...
- Disco family: 3Disco, iDisco, Disco+, final immersion in DBE.
- Ethylcinnamate (ECI)
