At Precisionary Instruments, we aim to push the boundaries of scientific research. That’s why we love to see how scientists find new ways to use our products.

At the Allen Institute, the “open science” concept pairs neuroscientists with system engineers to come up with innovative ideas and conjure them into existence. We are proud that the Compresstome® can be part of this project, helping the scientists work with both mouse brains as well as human brain tissues.
