Over the past 10 years, light sheet microscopy (or selective plane illumination microscopy, SPIM) has transformed the microscopy field, offering a faster, less phototoxic technique than conventional methods that can create true 3-D images. Ideal for observing living organisms and the cellular dynamics of biological systems, this method uses a unique illumination approach to achieve high penetration depths, fast imaging speeds, and subcellular-level resolution. Because a specimen is illuminated with a sheet of light rather than a focused laser beam, only regions directly exposed to light will fluoresce—creating minimal photo-induced tissue damage. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss their own uses of light sheet microscopy and provide insight into its different applications, including open source SPIM and the dynamic behavior of subcellular components within live specimens.
During the webinar, viewers will:
- Learn about state-of-the-art light sheet microscopy techniques
- Discover recent advances in the field
- Hear how microscopists are applying the technology
- Have their questions answered live by our expert panel!
