Zeiss Z.1 Light Sheet Microscopy

Light shield

Zeiss Z.1 Light Sheet microscopy system [Funded by ETF funds, Biology, A&S Dean’s office; 2014]

Light sheet is a technology proven to capture high resolution, three-dimensional images while being very gentle on living samples. These capabilities, along with built-in environmental controls, enable long term imaging of entire organisms, including Drosophila, zebrafish, C. elegans, plants, cell spheroids, embryos (mouse or xenopus), young murine embryos and clarity tissue imaging.
