Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM) Light Sheet

SPIM Principle

The SPIM technology offers fast, optically-sectioning, minimally-invasive 3D acquisition of fluorescing specimen over time. It achieves that by focusing a thin laser light-sheet into the specimen, taking two-dimensional images of the illuminated slice with a perpendicularly positioned detector (CCD camera). Three-dimensional stacks are obtained by moving the specimen orthogonal to the light-sheet between consecutive images. By mounting the sample in a rigid medium, e.g. agarose, and hanging it into the sample chamber in front of the detection lens, it is possible to rotate the sample and collect 3d stacks from multiple angles (views).

 

SPIM Applications

SPIM promises to revolutionize several fields of biological research, in particular developmental and cell biology, by allowing imaging of large samples with high resolution over extended periods of time. SPIM has been used in a spectacular fashion to record the development of embryos of model organisms such as Drosophila and zebra fish with cellular resolution throughout the developing specimen (the so-called in toto imaging). The ability of SPIM to deliver high signal-to-noise 3D images of large specimen from different angles in an extended time-lapse is currently hard to achieve with any other microscopy technology. Since monitoring biological systems with high resolution over time is the goal of essentially all fields of biological inquiry, SPIM technology is imminently useful to biologists.

BiopenSPIM Light-Sheet Microscope

Introduction

This is a complete ready to use industrial version of OpenSPIM (Open access Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy)-concept light-sheet microscope. The microscope includes one laser, two objective lenses, one motorized 4-axis stage (XY stage, autofocus, rotation), a chamber, a camera, c-mount adapter, USB hub and required cables, all installed inside  a nice box. All of these parts can be customized, based on your imaging requirements, at a very reasonable price. This is the lowest price light sheet microscope package available in the market.

Specifications

1) Chamber

Customized per application and imaging requirements:

 

2) Objective Lenses

We offer 4x, 10x, 20x and 40x. You need minimum two sets of these objective lenses, one for excitation and another for emission /detection.

3) Laser and Filter

4) Camera

CMOS, sCMOs and cooled CCD cameras are available.

5) 4-Dimensional XYZ-R Stage

  • Compact four dimensional (X, Y, Z, R) Stage.
  • Draws power from a standard USB port with use of a externally powered USB 4-port Hub.
  • Fully self-contained miniature (Size-8) stepper motors, with integrated control electronics.
  • Linear (X, Y, Z) travel range of about 9 mm (~0.35”).
  • Linear slides have friction locks for transport.
  • Positional resolution of 1.5 microns (0.00006”).
  • Rotational resolution of 200 step/rev (0.5 deg).
  • Includes Sample-Arm with pulleys and belt to hold and rotate the Sample-Tube.
  • Power efficient, holds position with no power.
  • Built-in magnetic (Hall effect) home sensor on the linear (X, Y, and Z) motors.
  • PC Windows based user interface included for easy “out of the box” motion control.
  • Dynamic Linkable Library ( DLL) included for custom automated application.
