The SWITCH tissue processing framework consists of three key methods:

  • Scalable and uniform tissue preservation
  • Easy and rapid tissue clearing
  • Virtually unlimited rounds of antibody labeling, stripping, and relabeling.

With these methods, you can perform many labeling rounds on the same tissue. Better yet, this is scalable to large volumes.
