      Description

      Light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is an imaging method that uses one or more illumination objectives to excite fluorophores in a specimen with a thin sheet of light, which are then visualized with a separate imaging objective perpendicular to the sheet. LSFM has several advantages over confocal microscopy, including:
           Excellent sample penetration
           High speed
           Minimal phototoxicity and photobleaching

      These properties make LSFM ideal for many biological imaging applications, including:
           Fluorescence imaging of thick samples, including cleared tissues
           Long term imaging of live samples
