"I am one of the early adopters of whole-brain clearing and imaging technologies and continue to be an enthusiastic developer myself. Currently, my group is focusing on applying brain-wide approaches to understand the central regulation of energy metabolism. I used to build my own device years ago but constant maintenance and repair of homemade devices simply aren't practical for fast-paced, high-throughput applications. Having a turn-key clearing/imaging system by LifeCanvas has been absolutely transformative and a blessing even for experienced users like us. The technology is state-of-the-art and quality of results, in my opinion, are second to none (commercial or home-built). The engineering and support teams at LifeCanvas are true experts of their technologies and incredibly responsive. I would not hesitate to continue to support their products and service."
