ASI diSPIM

Dual Inverted Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (diSPIM)


ASI has developed a new form of light sheet microscopy with our collaborators within the scientific community. The system utilizes two water emersion objectives mounted at 45 degree angles above the sample on an inverted microscope, a third objective also can be used to view the sample from below. The top objectives are mounted on piezo positioning devices so precise image stacks can be obtained. The system utilizes micro-mirrors to generate the light sheet, and the complete system can be mounted on to an existing inverted microscope, or supplied with ASI’s Rapid Automated Modular Microscope system (RAMM). Some of the benefits of the system include:

ASI RAMM
  • Use conventional mounting /glass cover slips
  • Generate 3D volumes with isotropic resolution (330 nm in all directions)
  • Axial resolution is ~2x better than confocal- or spinning disk systems
  • Achieve a ~7-10 fold reduction in photobleaching
  • Acquisition rates up to 200 images per second or 2-5 volumes per second (roughly 10x faster than spinning-disk microscopes)
  • Compared to Bessel beam plane illumination approaches, diSPIM offers equivalent (or better) axial resolution (~330 nm), 10-100x faster volumetric imaging rates (0.5-1 s instead of 10-100 s), and the ability to image over ~10x more time points (~1000 instead of ~100), due to the significantly lower illumination dose employed in our experiments and the lack of extraneous illumination outside the focal plane
  • Microscope has multicolor capability, and has been tested successfully on cells cultured on cover slips, cells embedded in collagen gels, and nematode and zebrafish embryos.

LuxendoPhenosys

Luxendo was founded in 2015 as spin-off from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). They develop and manufacture proprietary light-sheet fluorescence microscopy instruments. With a strong focus on applications, LUXENDO’s solutions are easy to use. The microscopes avoid sample photo toxicity by sequentially illuminating a stack of thin slices of the organism, allowing scientists to observe living organisms for extended periods of time without photo damage.

LCS SPIM

The Light-Sheet Microscope for Large Cleared Samples

The LCS SPIM is one of the latest product in LUXENDO’ s growing family of light-sheet microscopes. The basic configuration of the Luxendo LCS offers a cost-effective solution for cleared sample imaging. Based on a very versatile layout, the highly flexible upgrade options expand the performance of the system to increase speed and optical performance.

Luxendo LCS SPIM
Sample Chamber:

An exchangeable quartz crystal cuvette simplifies the whole sample mounting procedure as well as cleaning and maintenance, while ensuring compatibility with a wide range of clearing solutions by covering a refractive index (RI) range from 1.33 to 1.57. The cuvette is available in different lengths to accommodate samples of different sizes: the maximum cuvette dimensions are 40 mm × 20 mm × 20 mm (l × w × h).

Key Features:
  • High-performance, cost-effective bench-top device
  • Unique cuvette-based sample mounting approach
  • Fast 3D imaging of large cleared samples
  • Compact, vibration-free and robust design
  • Resolution down to 1 µm in 3D
  • Browser-based user interface

MuVi-SPIM

The Multiview Light-Sheet Microscope


The MuVi SPIM is a horizontal setup designed to image large volumes very fast. The unique 4-axis concept with its two-sided illumination allows four combinations of illumination and detection. This provides four orthogonal views of the specimen without the need for sample rotation, avoiding shadowing effects and facilitating long-term imaging. Combined with the sample mounting from below, this allows maximized acquisition speed and high precision of data fusion while preserving stability and integrity of the sample.The MuVi SPIM capacities can be further extended to enable imaging of optically cleared samples and performing photomanipulation experiments (e.g. ablation, bleaching). For this purpose, the MuVi SPIM CS (Cleared Sample) and the MuVi SPIM PM (Photomanipulation) have been conceived.

Key features:
  • Unique 4-axis concept
  • 3D imaging of both large life specimens and cleared tissue
  • Compact, vibration-free and robust design
  • Resolution down to 280 nm in 3D
  • Browser-based user interface
