Description: Light-sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) enables large-scale, three-dimensional imaging at high imaging speeds with less phototoxicity and photobleaching. The Bruker MuVi microscope provides flexible illumination and detection configurations suitable for imaging samples from fields as diverse as cell and developmental biology, neuroscience, oncology, and plant research. In this presentation, you can expect to learn the advantages of light-sheet fluorescence microscopy and how this technique can be adapted to image a variety of live, fixed or cleared samples.
