The light source of a widefield fluorescence microscope is often overlooked by scientists setting out to capture fast cellular processes with live cell imaging. But LEDs have changed the game.

Isabel Goodhand explains how innovations such as multi-wavelength switching and TTL triggering enable speeds faster than 7 µs, even without expensive motorized components. Because another important factor to consider for high-speed imaging is the optical filter configuration, Goodhand also shows how multi-band filters can balance speed and contrast requirements.
