Zeiss, Janelia to Commercialize Fluorescence Technique
ASHBURN, Va., Sept. 10, 2104 — The Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus has teamed up with Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH to commercialize Bessel beam plane illumination microscopy, also called lattice light-sheet microscopy.
The method allows high-speed, 3-D fluorescence imaging of living cellular and multicellular specimens with nearly isotropic spatial resolution, low photo-bleaching and low photo-damage using special beam conditioning.
The fluorescence imaging method was invented by Janelia researcher Dr. Eric Betzig.
