Japanese mad scientists have created jelly mouse with a microwave

Now I'm glad I'm alive
Isn't this the CLARITY project?
Turns the animal tissue clear for in situ visualisation of tissues via immunohistochemistry and fluorescence/confocal microscopy.
It's predominantly for pain/neurobiology research, and the chemical cocktail that turns the tissues transparent gives you megacancer. Which is funny because the people who developed the model did so by performing the first incubation in a freezer bag and an empty pipette tip box.
What are the chances that mass media will pick this up and angry mobs of moralfags will veto it in the west? Keep in mind that i understand that Nippon itself probably doesn't give a shit and will proceed to make jelly waifus a reality
for their own personal use ;_;.
Now repeat all that fancy science mumbo jumbo us layman folks.
This shit actually was a theory and they just proved it? Damn.
What they're doing is introducing some molecules that bind to proteins and other structures of interest whilst leaving lipids alone, that then polymerize into a gel when they heat it which fixes everything that's bound to it, allowing them to remove a lot of the stuff that prevents imaging from being easy (like lipids) by washing some charged molecules through the gel.
