The lattice light sheet microscope, as developed at Janelia by Eric Betzig and his collaborators, allows for rapid 3D imaging of live cells with multiple channels and low phototoxicity. The lattice light sheet microscope makes use of thin plane illumination, reducing the overall laser exposure to the sample, whilst providing much faster data acquisition when compared to standard confocal or two-photon microscopy. This technology lends itself ideally to capturing live cell dynamics in three dimensions over time.
