Optimized tissue processing products

SHIELD ensures superior tissue preservation, our Clear+ active and passive tissue clearing methods combined with EasyIndex provide easy and effective optical clearing, and our active immunolabeling technologies produce uniform, high quality tissue staining that rival traditional immunohistochemistry (IHC).                       

Leverage the full power of our pipeline by using these reagents with our user-friendly devices. Process preserved intact samples with SmartBatch+, the only system on the market to perform active batch tissue clearing and labeling. Image your perfectly cleared samples with our light sheet microscope SmartSPIM and analyze your results with our SmartAnalytics workstation to produce stunning publication-quality data.

Streamlined whole organ mapping

Experience the potential of owning our complete workflow: our CRO services give you access to extensive, in-house expertise in tissue processing and integrated image analysis methods to radically improve your science and expedite discoveries.                   

We offer solutions for research projects from neuroscience — including cFOS neural activity mapping and neurological disease phenotyping — to other mammalian systems including spinal cord, heart, intestine, kidney, and vasculature. Our versatile methods can be applied to explore endogenous fluorescence and a variety of stains and biomarkers in unique tissue types such as tumors and organoids.
