Why only a 1 mm section?
3D tissue imaging is possible to very deep depths with the use of tissue clearing. However, there are many limitations and challenges with imaging tissues past 1 mm in depth:
Image stacks of larger tissue sections require special software and processing capabilities due to the extreme file size.
Optimization and validation of immunolabeling on tissue sections >1 mm is very time consuming and costly.
Confocal imaging past 1 mm is severely affected by axial distortion and special considerations must be made to normalize histograms from thick image sets.
Imaging and labeling multiple adjacent 1 mm sections is much more efficient than imaging and labeling large contiguous blocks.
Software can be used to stitch 1 mm sections together to achieve any desired thickness virtually.
Upon request, we can image larger and thicker tissue sections, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
