"CLARITY" as a way of a new organization transparency was announced by PhD.Karl Deisseroth and his colleagues at Stanford University at the journal Nature in March 2013 . Since CLARITY makes it possible for the immune staining using a fluorescent protein and antibody, it is expected as a useful tool for the analysis of brain circuits.
VA-044 is a reagent used in the transparent process of the paper protocol.
