Light sheet microscopy

Benefits of light sheet microscopy

  • Fast and gentle 3D imaging
  • High frame rates
  • Minimum photodamage and fluorophore bleaching

High-speed imaging of fragile life specimens and large cleared tissue

Samples are excited from the side by a focused light sheet while the fluorescence light is detected by a sCMOS camera perpendicular to the illumination plane. 3D image stacks are generated by moving the sample through the light sheet.

High frame rates

View details

 

Illuminating only the focal plane of the detection objective lens allows 3D microscopy utilizing a camera-based wide-field microscope with high frame rates.

Minimum photodamage and fluorophore bleaching

As only the actually observed section is illuminated, photodamage and fluorophore bleaching are kept at a minimum.
