Advanced Microscopy – Seminar Oct. 8 – Light Sheet Microscopy

A special seminar on Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) is scheduled for Tuesday Oct. 8 at 2:00 p.m. in room 162 of the Food Safety & Toxicology Bldg. (attached to the south side of the CIPS Bldg.).

LSFM has much potential in facilitating dynamic live cell microscopy.  The technique has less photobleaching and phototoxicity than conventional confocal microscopy, faster frame rates, and the ability to image deeper within samples.

This is the first in a series of seminars being sponsored by the Center for Advanced Microscopy on the subject of LSFM.  The Oct. 8 seminar covers the subject of Lateral Interference Tilted Excitation (LITE), one of several variations of LSFM.  Chris Baumann from Mizar Imaging will be giving the presentation.  The attached article provides full details of the LITE method.

Please contact Melinda ( if you would like to schedule time for a demo of the system or to test your samples on the Tilt LITE module.  Mizar will have a Tilt LITE Module installed in the confocal lab (CIPS room B-7) and will be available for demonstrations Wednesday Oct. 9 and Thursday Oct. 10.

Dates and times of future seminars will be posted.
