Animal Tissue-Clearing Reagents

These products were developed by Prof. Hiroki R. Ueda (The University of Tokyo / RIKEN) and are under invention licenses by RIKEN, Japan.

Both of CUBIC-L (Product Number: T3740) and CUBIC-R+ (Product Number: T3741) are required for tissue-clearing.

Advantages

Whole-body clearing is achieved using two reagents, CUBIC-L (for delipidation and decoloring) and CUBIC-R+ (for RI matching).

The quenching of fluorescence signal is low.

The period of sample treatment is shorter.

The combination with light-sheet fluorescent microscopy (LSFM) or confocal laser-scanning microscopy (CLSM) enables the whole-organ / body imaging at a cellular resolution.
