Large Volume Imaging: Tips and Tricks for Sample preparation and clearing.
What can you expect from a successful protocol?
sponsored by Andor
Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in clearing methods due to the emergence of new microscopes, cameras, and objectives able to increase the amount of information one can extract from volumetric data. We will discuss what makes the foundation of a successful clearing strategy, and how to adapt it to the different nature of the tissues being processed. Samples including insects, human biopsies, tumours, carp tissue, and rat brain will be considered. The final focus will be on one specific technique (CUBIC), a reasonably versatile method, and the results you can expect to achieve.
