ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7: Long-term volumetric imaging at subcellular resolution with a minimum of light exposure

With the release of ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7, ZEISS places a turn-key lattice light sheet instrument at the disposal of the life science research community. Based on the pioneering research and developments of Ernst H. K. Stelzer while at EMBL, Heidelberg, on light sheet technology and of Nobel laureate Eric Betzig while at the Janelia Research Campus of HHMI on structuring light sheets as optical lattices to render them thinner and longer, ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 is tailored to observing cellular processes within cells and small organisms in 3D over extended time periods – all at subcellular resolution – with the minimum light dosage.
