Light sheet microscopes

Light sheet microscopes at LMU.
Zeiss LightSheet Z.1

Lightsheet imaging is a fluorescence microscopy technique with an intermediate optical resolution but good optical sectioning capabilities and high speed.  This means that the device is best employed to study large structures such as organs and embryos.  It is also especially good for sensitive live samples because the intensity of the light is low comparing to other fluorescence imaging technics. Method is only suitable for fluorescence imaging.
