The Tilt from Mizar Imaging is a modular light sheet illumination system designed for high-resolution imaging. Mounting to most inverted microscopes, the Tilt enables light sheet imaging to be easily added to an existing or new microscope system.
The Tilt brings Lateral Interference Tilted Excitation (LITE) microscopy (Fadero, et al., 2018) to the market. LITE microscopy eliminates the steric interference between illumination and detection objectives found in conventional light sheet illumination methods. Thus making it compatible with any detection objective, including high NA objectives (1.4 and greater). The Tilt system includes the LITE illumination module and an X,Y, PiezoZ substage, enabling high-speed, high-resolution, 3D light sheet imaging on a standard inverted microscope.
