Tissue Optical Clearing Workshop

If you are interested in discovering tissue optical clearing methodologies, the BIC is happy to propose a theoretical and practical workshop that will take place on Monday 10th of June at 9:30AM at the Broca center.

Please note that the registration deadline is on the 27th of May.

Optical clearing techniques are becoming crucial tools to study big biological samples. In fact, exploring entire mouse organs with light microscopy is challenging because of the natural opacity of biological tissues. A solution to this problem is to turn these samples transparent by optical clearing. It becomes then possible to explore their full depth with light sheet microscopy.

This workshop for 20 participants maximum will give an overview of the different optical clearing methods and of their applications. We will demonstrate the benefits of light-sheet microcopy for these big volume samples. Finally, we will explain how to visualize and analyze these entire organs.

Hope to see you there!
