Our Mission

To revolutionize the diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive treatment of disease by enabling next generation technologies for non-destructively processing and digitally analyzing tissue in 3D.

Imagine

Non-destructive tissue processing and digital spatial image analysis in 3D to facilitate your pre-clinical and clinical research studies

ClearLight Biotechnologies (formerly ClearLight Diagnostics, LLC) was founded in 2014 by Karl Deisseroth MD, PhD, the inventor of CLARITY, Optogenetics, and STARmap technologies. It is an early stage company focused on developing automated instrumentation and associated reagents to simplify and expedite non-destructive 3D tissue analysis to facilitate preclinical and clinical research applications. The platform will enable an end-to-end solution for 3D analysis of preclinical and clinical models of disease.

Nature posted a video to YouTube describing the CLARITY 3D tissue imaging technology.
