Visikol® HISTO™ is reversible
Easily validate your 3D data against traditional 2D histology
Visikol HISTO preserves tissues! Tissue clearing techniques like CLARITY, SeeDB, BABB and 3DISCO irreversibly change the cellular structure of tissues, since they rely on removal of lipid structures and/or hydration of protein structure.
Say "so long" to stereology! With Visikol HISTO, traditional 2D H&E processing can be completed after 3D imaging, so you can choose exactly which sections are of interest, before the tissue is even embedded.
Obtain 3D image stacks and 2D H&E slides from the same sample! You don't have to choose between 3D imaging and your conventional tissue-imaging workflow, Visikol fits right in so you can get the most out of each specimen!
