Introducing the Tilt-RM

December 4, 2020

One issue that is inherent in every light sheet imaging system is “striping.” This occurs when something interferes with the incoming light sheet (debris in the sample chamber for example). This then causes a stripe in the light sheet. To reduce this striping, the Tilt-RM introduces a resonance scanning mirror in the light path as […]

How to mount samples for imaging with the Tilt light sheet imaging system

April 6, 2020

In today’s installment of the “Working from my basement” series of video tutorials, we are going to look at what you need to consider when mounting samples to be imaged with the Tilt light sheet imaging system. We will cover the types of imaging chambers you should use and how to properly prepare you samples […]

Multimodal Imaging made easy with the Tilt light sheet imaging system

April 1, 2020

Today we are going to explore “multimodal” imaging and see how the Tilt can be used to easily turn almost any microscope into a multimodal imaging system.

How the Tilt works – An understanding of L.I.T.E.

March 31, 2020

Welcome. This is the first of our “Working from my Basement” series of video tutorials on the Tilt light sheet imaging system. We are going to start from the beginning and take a look at the technology behind the Tilt, which is known as L.I.T.E. or Lateral Interference Tilted Excitation. This technology was developed by […]

A New Angle on Lightsheet Microscopy

April 12, 2019

All too often we encounter a scientist who believes their sample is “too small”, or the detail they need to resolve “too fine”, for a lightsheet microscope.  Or worse yet, we never encounter them because they never even consider lightsheet microscopy as an option for their imaging because of their preconceived notions on what lightsheet […]
