Polarized light imaging (PLI) is one of the most powerful methods to study brain architecture at the micro-scale. Taorad builds the most sophisticated automated PLI-microscopes on the market, allowing to study thousands of sections of an entire human brain. By this Taorad gives access to 3D-brain architectures at the scale of single neurones.

User Consortium

Polarized light microscopy is a relatively novel technology in the area of brain imaging and applied only by a few labs worldwide. In order to promote this powerful technology, we collaborate with strong partners to spread this technology into more labs.


A strength of Taorad is to customize automated solutions for brain-imaging to customer needs. This implies customization at the level of optics, mechanics, automation and IT. For more information, please feel free to contact us.
