X-CLARITY™ Polymerization System C20001The X-CLARITY™ Polymerization System is a standalone, automated system developed to simplify tissue-hydrogel hybridization, a crucial step for optimal tissue clearing. Multiple samples can be placed in multi-well plates or conical tubes for rapid and efficient high-throughput sample processing. Users can control polymerization by adjusting vacuum strength, temperature, and a timer through a simple touchscreen interface.App Note

X-CLARITY™ Tissue Clearing System II C30001The X-CLARITY™ Tissue Clearing System II is an all-in-one, easy-to-use solution for electrophoretic tissue clearing. Its unique design accelerates the removal of lipids from tissues while preserving the structural integrity of the sample. Clear a whole mouse brain in just 6 hours, an astounding 8 times faster than the original technology. Users can set tissue clearing conditions through a simple and intuitive touchscreen interface. In ETC (electrophoretic tissue clearing) mode, platinum-plated electrodes generate an electric field to accelerate the removal of lipids from tissues in a highly efficient manner. A built-in temperature control system actively cools and heats buffer to maintain consistent buffer temperatures during clearing. Buffer is constantly circulated to ensure consistent buffering capacity, temperature control, and elimination of tissue clearing byproducts. This advanced system ensures efficient, rapid, and consistent tissue clearing.APP NOTE SAMPLE HOLDERS

WHAT DO OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY?
Chiara Magliaro, PhD
Research Center E. Piaggio - University of Pisa
The X-CLARITY system is a very easy-to-use and versatile instruments. I started using it for murine brains, and it was quite easy to customize the protocols also for different biological samples (e.g., 3D advanced neural constructs). It allows me to avoid both waste of time and money.
Dongyue Lin, PhD
Sun Yat-Sen University
Great results. The instrument is very convenient, and the tissue clearing effect is very good.
Francesca Longhena, PhD
University of Brescia
Essential for good clarification! This instrument is very useful in order to make the clarification protocol easier and faster!"
San Raffaele Scientific Institute
X-CLARITY is the definitive solution for an effective, robust and highly repeatable clearing. X-CLARITY helps clearing expert users to have more reproducible and standardized data, opening the possibility to have robust quantitative data even from cleared tissue samples, as well as dummies that look out this technique for the first time. In our facility very often people who had never even been done just simple immunofluorescences they were able to get perfect cleared samples for imaging (confocal or two-photon).
Claire Crola Da Silva, PhD
It is essential for our research. Very easy to use. It gives robust and reproducible results and allows us to standardize the methodological chain.
Great results, easy to use! This product was effective at clearing my tissue samples. It cleared whole brains, hearts, stomach, kidneys, livers, etc. The user manual was easy to read and easy to follow. There is little attention and maintenance required while the system in running.
Terika Smith, PhD
University of South Carolina
Great instrument and would highly recommend. This tissue clearing system is very easy to use and is very user friendly. I've used it to clear mouse nerves and spinal cords in approximately 4-6 hours. When the system first arrived, there was an issue with the ETC controller, but customer service handled it very efficiently and quickly. We've been getting great results with this system and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in tissue clearing.
Alexandre Paccalet, PhD
Confident system and confident company. I work with the X-CLARITY system every day and I can say that this is a very reliable system. The simpler utilization and the ergonomics of the machine is appreciable. The customer service cannot be more efficient, any problems are resolved in a day or two day maximum and communication is based on mutual confidence. I recommend Logos and the X-CLARITY system.
Gabriel Bidaux, PhD
INSERM UMR 1060
For you if you want to accelerate your research! The X-CLARITY system is easy to use, devoted to aqueous-based method for organ clearing. It helps clearing several organs at once and in a short period of time. Works well on a lot of different mouse organs or even pieces of primates and humans organs. Logos Biosystems after-sales are fast and always find a compromise as a solution to our rare issues.
Doug Richardson, PhD
Harvard Center for Biological Imaging
We purchased the X-CLARITY Tissue Clearing System for our facility and have been very satisfied with its easy-to-use design and consistent results. The X-CLARITY Tissue Clearing System has now allowed many more researchers to enter the field of tissue clearing. In my opinion, the X-CLARITY Tissue Clearing System along with the recently introduced X-CLARITY Polymerization System will help expand the availability of this technique to all scientists who hope to add it to their laboratory’s repertoire.
Great product, produces rich data. So far, the X-CLARITY has helped us to get amazing data on astrocyte morphology in the olfactory bulb. Thanks to the clearing, it makes slicing the tissue for microscopy redundant. Therefore we are able to study the more complex networks in their physiological form. Great product!
Uri Manor, PhD
Salk Institute for Biological Studies
The X-CLARITY system is a delight to use and significantly lowers the barrier to tissue clearing imaging applications. With better clearing, and faster turnaround time, we were able to generate many more samples and images than would otherwise have been possible. Highly recommended!
Yoko Yazaki-Sugiyama, PhD
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology
For quite a while we were using passive immersion method to obtain transparent zebra finch brains, but this was time-consuming and always a pain in the neck. With the X-CLARITY Tissue Clearing System, even a whole brain can be cleared within several hours with excellent consistency as well as better signal-to-noise ratio when acquiring fluorescent images from deep tissue. It has made our lives a lot easier. TIME IS MONEY!
Robert Hunt, PhD
University of California, Irvine
We were not sure what to expect when we tried the X-CLARITY Tissue Clearing System. I've tried other tissue clearing methods with varying levels of success. When Jan, a first-year graduate student, showed me a fully cleared whole mouse brain on his first try, I was really impressed! I think this system will really speed up his work.
Annick Prigent & Benoît Delatour, PhD
The X-CLARITY allows us to perform rapid, efficient, and standardized clearing of mouse and human brain tissues. Access to the X-CLARITY technology will undoubtedly help the ICM research teams to better understand the 3D organization of protein assemblies and organelles in tissues.
Woong Sun, PhD
Korea University Medical School
I tried to design my own DIY ETC chamber for a long time without any success. I tried the X-CLARITY Tissue Clearing System and got a transparent mouse brain on my first try. It works really well and is easy to use. I’ve successfully imaged tissues that contain GFP or that I’ve labeled with fluorescence-tagged antibodies. It makes tissue clearing a stress free process.
Youngshik Choe, PhD
Korea Brain Research Institute
I find the X-CLARITY simplifies the CLARITY procedure and gives consistent transparency of tissues by plug and play steps.
The best of it is the speed that can't be achieved by other methods.
