We present a multiview selective-plane illumination microscope (MuVi-SPIM), comprising two detection and illumination objective lenses, that allows rapid in toto fluorescence imaging of biological specimens with subcellular resolution. The fixed geometrical arrangement of the imaging branches enables multiview data fusion in real time. The high speed of MuVi-SPIM allows faithful tracking of nuclei and cell shape changes, which we demonstrate through in toto imaging of the embryonic development… 

Setting Up a Simple Light Sheet Microscope for In Toto Imaging of C. elegans Development

The setup of a light sheet based microscope, which is composed of an upright microscope and a small set of opto-mechanical elements for the generation of the light sheet, is presented, which allows the capture of 3D two-colors time-lapse movies over few hours of development.

Confocal multiview light-sheet microscopy

This work combines multiview light-sheet imaging with electronic confocal slit detection implemented on modern camera sensors, eliminating the need for specimen-specific data fusion algorithms, streamlines image post-processing, easing data handling and storage.

Multiview tiling light sheet microscopy for 3D high resolution live imaging

A Multiview tiling SPIM that combines the Multi-view SPIM (M- SPIM) with a confined, multi-tiled light sheet that improves the axial-resolution relative to the conventional M-SPIM by a factor of two and improves the automated segmentation of Myosin II distribution and of nuclear volumes and shapes.

Fast Fluorescence Microscopy with Light Sheets

This review explains why light sheet microscopes are much faster and gentler than other established fluorescence microscopy techniques and introduces new volumetric imaging schemes and highlights of selected biological applications.



Optical Sectioning Deep Inside Live Embryos by Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy

Large, living biological specimens present challenges to existing optical imaging techniques because of their absorptive and scattering properties. We developed selective plane illumination

Fast, high-contrast imaging of animal development with scanned light sheet–based structured-illumination microscopy

This method discriminates the specimen-related scattered background from signal fluorescence, thereby removing out-of-focus light and optimizing the contrast of in-focus structures, and provides rapid control of the illumination pattern, exceptional imaging quality and high imaging speeds.

Deep and fast live imaging with two-photon scanned light-sheet microscopy

We implemented two-photon scanned light-sheet microscopy, combining nonlinear excitation with orthogonal illumination of light-sheet microscopy, and showed its excellent performance for in vivo,

Live-cell 3D super-resolution imaging in thick biological samples

3D super-resolution imaging of cellular spheroids is demonstrated by coupling far-field individual molecule localization with selective plane illumination microscopy (SPIM), which allows nanometric localization of single molecules in thick scattering specimens without activating or exciting molecules outside the focal plane.
