  • The transparency technique "TOMEI" was developed by Prof. Matsunaga et al. at the Tokyo University of Science. This method enables the clearing of Oryza sativa, Arabidopsis thaliana and many others in just a few hours. Using this ground-breaking technique, deeper internal structures of the plants can be observed with much greater clarity. With the technique, “TOMEI-I”, you can reduce the intrinsic fluorescence of chlorophyll, as well as reduce fluorescent protein, and thus observation benefits from the use of fluorescent dyes. Alternatively, the transparency technique “TOMEI-II” doesn’t significantly reduce intrinsic fluorescence due to its mild conditions, but the transparency is adequate to detect fluorescent proteins.
