Tissue Clearing Services


ClearLight Bio provides CLARITY tissue clearing services to preclinical researchers who want to See More Biology in the tissue / tumor microenvironment.

    We had tried several other methods prior to working with ClearLight, but the results were inconclusive and unsatisfactory. The video from the 3D IHC finally got us the confirmation that our experimental therapeutic may be working.
    Our investors were wowed by the 3D video [ClearLight provided]. They hadn’t seen anything like it and it clearly demonstrated that our research shows promise.
    Working with Sharla and the team helped us solidify our research goals.
    The images we received from ClearLight led to us revising our direction and cutting our losses on an approach that wasn’t working. In the end we estimate that insight saved us at least 1000 hours in staff time that could then be more profitably utilized.
    Thank you so much for all the work! We are greatly satisfied with the quality and responsiveness to our additional requests for processing, file sharing, etc. Great to work together.

    Why Choose ClearLight Bio for Tissue Clearing Services?

    CLARITY tissue clearing is a core service of ClearLight Biotechnologies. CLARITY is the only tissue clearing technique to employ tissue lipid-clearing prior to immunostaining followed by refractive index (RI) matching. Other techniques immunostain tissue samples before applying the clearing reagent(s) which also serves as a refractive index match. Following a workflow of clear - stain - image produces superior results. Visit our tissue clearing comparison to see for yourself.
