Light Microscopy

From Live Imaging to Cleared Samples

@ Lightsheet 7

Life sciences research can put big demands on your imaging capability. It sometimes requires imaging of whole living model organisms, tissues and cells as they develop. Light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) with its unique illumination principle is ideal for fast and gentle imaging of such specimens.

Course Details


It enables the observation of living samples over extended periods of time — even days — with less phototoxicity than ever before. What’s more, you can employ this technique to image very large optically cleared specimens in toto, and with subcellular resolution. This course provides detailled knowledge about LSFM and lots of hands-on @ Lightsheet 7.
