Product Description

Exceptional protection for optimal tissue processing and imaging

Superior Tissue Presentation

Proprietary SHIELD tissue preservation system from LifeCanvas (Park et al, Nature Biotechnology 2018) safeguards endogenous fluorescence, protein antigenicity, nucleic acids, and overall tissue architecture against physical and chemical stressors.

Compatible with all PFA-fixed tissues as well as multiplexing, SHIELD protects tissue during fluorescent protein imaging and antibody labeling across multiple rounds. Our streamlined protocol preserves samples in 4-6 days without the variability of tissue embedding via hydrogel or paraffin, and our reagents are non-toxic and easily disposable.

Two kit sizes available:

250 mL: Preserves 12 whole mouse brains or comparably sized samples

  • 250 mL SHIELD Epoxy
  • 125 mL SHIELD Buffer
  • 500 mL SHIELD ON

500 mL: Preserves 25 whole mouse brains or comparably sized samples

  • 500 mL SHIELD Epoxy
