• The groundbreaking microscope uses a technique called lattice light-sheet microscopy
  • Lattice light-sheet microscopy uses a non-diffracting light called a Bessel beam that illuminates the sample from the side and is less damaging to living cells
  • The technique permitted faster scanning of the sample allowing up to 1,000 scans per second that captures the fast moving cellular processes in multiple thin sections that can be coalesced into stunning high-resolution 3D images and videos
