Revolutionizing biomaging

We are innovators in whole tissue processing, light sheet imaging, and analysis, empowering researchers with streamlined workflows and unbiased 3D data. LifeCanvas was founded by MIT Professor Kwanghun Chung, a pioneer in the field of tissue clearing who has developed many novel tools to explore biological systems, including: CLARITY, SWITCH, MAP, SHIELD, and eFLASH.

Elevating human health

Through our advanced technologies and unparalleled support, we expedite drug discovery, molecular phenotyping, and anatomical mapping. We enable biomedical breakthroughs, hastening the development of precision diagnoses and therapeutics for diseased tissues and solid tumors.

Advancing biomedical research

Our technologies have been used to process samples and generate high-quality 3D data from many biological systems, including:

  • Nervous (e.g. brain, spinal cord, dorsal root ganglion, sciatic nerve, peroneal nerve)
  • Cardiovascular (e.g. heart, blood vessels, cardiomyocytes)
  • Endocrine (e.g. pancreas, adipose tissue)
  • Digestive (e.g. intestine, liver)
  • Sensory (e.g. eye, ear)
  • Respiratory
  • Integumentary
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Reproductive
  • Organoids
  • Whole mice

Integrated workflows for spatial biology

Our pipeline is the world’s only end-to-end solution for processing whole organs from preservation to analysis. These methods have resolved many issues related to thin-section histology and immunohistochemistry (IHC), including: high consumption of time and resources, spotlight bias, and realignment errors.
