A new imaging platform developed by Eric Betzig offers another leap forward for light microscopy. Lattice light sheet microscopy lets biologists see 3-D images of subcellular activity in real time.

The new technology collects high-resolution images rapidly and minimizes damage to cells, meaning it can image the three-dimensional activity of molecules, cells, and embryos in fine detail over longer periods than was previously possible.

The lattice light sheet microscope is one of the cutting-edge imaging technologies available for scientists to use at no cost through Janelia's Advanced Imaging Center.
