A technique to achieve high resolution and faster sampling in Microscopy

Fluorescence microscopy is a continually developing tool for imaging biological samples, however, the same challenges are faced throughout the microscopy world:

  • High-resolution levels
  • Faster sampling rates

Light-sheet microscopy is a technique that employs scanning a sample as a plane of laser light, a second excitation lens is placed on a perpendicular axis to the detection lens. Light-sheet microscopy can, therefore, enable faster acquisition speeds and minimise phototoxicity and photobleaching effects. Aa another benefit, light-sheet microscopy improves this aspect through careful selection and tuning of the period of the lattice, filtering out unwanted frequencies, therefore offering an improved axial resolution.
