LifeCanvas Technologies: EasyClear Multi-Purpose Sample Processing System


  • No more complicated and slow sample processing
  • Easy. Fast. Affordable.

Say good bye to bulky and expensive water baths, incubators and shakers. The LifeCanvas Technologies all-in-one EasyClear multi-purpose sample processing device helps you achieve your goals faster, cheaper and easier by empowering you with a full touch screen control for temperature (20-90°C), tilting angle (0-60°), and shaking speed (0-120rpm) of all individual samples and batches. One EasyClear can process 10 samples simultaneously at different temperatures while keeping your sample damage free.

It’s so simple to use that tissue processing is hassle-free even for first timers.

  • Simplicity – Easy temperature control with touch screen interface. You no longer need to stress over problems caused by water baths such as water evaporation and contamination of samples by bath solutions etc.
  • Speed – Optimal shaking with precise temperature control makes tissue processing significantly faster than incubating samples in traditional water baths that are missing shaking functions.
  • Cost-efficiency – With one EasyClear you can process 10 samples simultaneously at different temperature points from 20°C to 90°C. Conventional methods would require several water baths and shakers, which will cost you substantially more than buying just one EasyClear.
