Discover the advantages of whole-organ analysis by SHIELD-preserving
a sample of your own and having us perform complimentary clearing,
labeling*, RI-matching, and light-sheet imaging!

We are now happy to offer prospective customers the opportunity to evaluate our services with a sample of their own, FREE of charge*.

*Free offer limited to certain services and applications, as follows:

• As part of an initial consultation, for each lab/PI we will process 1 sample (e.g., mouse brain hemisphere) free of charge, including performing SHIELD tissue preservation, SmartClear II Pro optical clearing, and SmartSPIM light-sheet imaging of up to two endogenous fluorescence channels.

• If part of your request, after optical clearing we can also perform SmartLabel whole-sample rapid immunostaining. We are happy to offer this on a complimentary basis as well, if the following conditions are met:

(1) Your choice of antibody/stain is one that we have previously validated as compatible with our approaches. Some examples include specific antibodies to: Parvalbumin (PV), Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), Neuropeptide Y (NPY), Tryptophan hydroxylase 2 (TPH2), Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), Myelin basic protein (MBP), histone H3, and GFP, as well as various fluorescent nuclear dyes such as SYTO 16 (488-excited) and TO-PRO-3 (642-excited).
(2) You provide us with ample antibody/stain to label your sample.

*Complimentary labeling with one user-supplied probe selected from LifeCanvas’s list of previously validated probes. Validation of novel probes is not included in free trial offer. We are happy to provide you with a quote for this service upon request.
