Tissue Clearing Webinar

In this webinar, Visikol CEO Michael Johnson, PhD provides an overview of tissue clearing and how to employ tissue clearing to image tissues in 3D using confocal or light sheet microscopy.

Aperio VERSA Visikol’s Highly Multiplexed Immunohistochemistry Approach

Through this presentation, Visikol will provide a background on various multiplex tissue imaging approaches and will describe how they can be used to answer complex research questions such as surveying the immune cell population within a tumor microenvironment or evaluating therapeutics for infectious diseases.

Case for 3D Cell Culture Models in Drug Discovery

In this video we describe how growing the Cellaria Wood breast cancer cell line in 3D and 2D generated significantly different results when used to screen small molecule drugs. Specifically, the cell line recapitulated the expression of estrogen receptor in 3D but did not express this in 2D.

Beating Primary Cardiomyocyte 3D Cell Culture

Visikol has the capability to generate a wide range of primary 3D cell culture models and in this video demonstrates its ability to generate murine derived cardiomyocyte models that are able to beat.

Visikol HISTO Brain Vasculature

Through the use of CD31 vasculature labeling combined with Visikol® HISTO™ and confocal microscopy entire vasculature networks can be mapped in 3D.

Whole Lung 3D Tissue Imaging

Complex and heterogeneous tissues such as the lung which are challenging to depict via traditional 2D histology can be easily characterized in 3D using Visikol HISTO and immunolabeling.

Virtual Reality Mouse Brain Vasculature

Data sets generated from confocal microscopy combined with tissue clearing can be visualized using virtual reality by exporting data sets as surface files.

Visikol HISTO Owl Brain Imaging

Whole brain connectomics can be executed through the use of tissue clearing combined with immunofluorescent labeling.

Visikol HISTO 3D Mouse Prostate Imaging

Biology that is challenging to depict in 2D can be easily characterized in 3D through the use of confocal microscopy combined with fluorescent labeling.

Visikol HISTO 3D Mammary Tissue
