Zeiss Z1 Light Sheet Microscope

Why Use This Microscope?

The Zeiss Z1 light sheet is a turnkey microscope that allow you to image both cleared and live samples with a large organ level overview at subcellular resolution.  It does this by bringing in the light sheets from the sample’s side and imaging perpendicular to the sheet.    It then splits the emission light into two paths allowing dual-camera imaging.  For more information on the Zeiss Z1 light-sheet, click here.
