Details fully resolved even in thick specimens
THUNDER Imager Tissue enables the meaningful exploration of thick tissue specimens with all the advantages of widefield microscopy. See the details of structures even deep in your specimen. It does not matter if you acquire single sections or 3D z-stacks.
The investigation of neuronal networks is a perfect example of what is possible. With Computational Clearing, a Leica technique, you remove the out-of-focus blur in real time and make the fine structure of specific brain areas visible.
Now you can follow the dynamics of reorganization within a neuronal network or the rebuilding and establishment of new synapses. In other words you can decode 3D biology in real time.

Image your whole specimen in a breathtakingly short time
Image rapidly the whole specimen with the THUNDER Imager Tissue. You can acquire outstanding images of thick specimens in one shot showing the finest cellular structures.
Now it is easy to collect clear, detailed images of larger tissue sections.
Combine THUNDER Imager Tissue with the LAS X Navigator software for a blur-free overview of your entire tissue specimen.
Quickly navigate your specimen and find regions of interest.

Cyclops sp. Nuclei (green), acetylated -tubulin (red), Serotonin (cyan). Image stack of a total volume of 332 x 332 x 84 µm³ with three colors and 305 z planes per color. Objective used was HC PL FLUOTAR 40x/1.30 OIL.
Two Options for THUNDER Imager Tissue
Choose the configuration which best meets your requirements:
- THUNDER Imager 3D Tissue is a fully automated tissue imaging system for recording multi-color 3D images. Capture multiple images in the z-direction and visualize them in the 3D viewer. Achieve excellent z-stack imaging due to a precise motorized focus drive. Decode 3D structures in real time.
- For brilliant imaging of single planes and fast overviews of your tissue the THUNDER Imager Tissue is also available in a cost-effective configuration without a motorized focus drive.
