Light-Sheet/SPIM – Toulouse, France

System description & applications

The SPIM (Selective Plane Illumination Microscope) is a microscope based on a light sheet excitation. It allows fast optical sectioning, in 3D and in depth for the living, it also offers multi-view acquisition possibilities.

Researchers use this system to observe a wide variety of living biological samples in 3D with quasi-isotropic spatial resolution and high temporal resolution.
