The SP8 is a laser scanning confocal microscope with CLARITY optics and Huygens deconvolution software.  This enables unprecedented levels of in depth optical sectioning of lipid cleared tissue without mechanical sectioning, while retaining tissue permeability to fluorescent antibody macromolecules.
