Cancer Doesn’t Limit Itself to 2 Dimensions. Neither Should We.


We are building something special. We invite you to coordinate with our scientific staff. Talk to a member of our science team about research alignment. See how Tru3D custom services can help your organization achieve its research objectives.

Imagine, non-destructive tissue processing to facilitate your pre-clinical and clinical research studies.

Imagine, a way to illuminate your tissue microenvironment in a 3D volume

Imagine, automating this process and integrating it into your normal tissue processing workflow.


ClearLight Biotechnologies is a contract research partner who can provide expert CLARITY tissue clearing, immunohistochemistry, and 3D imaging so researchers and scientists can see more biology.

Creating Cures Community

We applaud the research community and their involvement in the drug discovery and development process. These are the modern heroes who will create the cures of tomorrow for the diseases that impact human potential and decrease lifespan. Perhaps you are one. Join us.

Previous Issues

Analysis can be performed for select biomarkers, please contact us to find out if your target of interest is one of them. Imaging is currently performed on select fields of view instead of the entire sample.
