Flamingo: Putting Advanced Light Sheet Microscopy in the Hands of Biologists


  • Jan Huisken, Ph.D.

    Director of Medical Engineering, Morgridge Institute for Research, Madison, WI, USA

Light sheet microscopy (SPIM) has changed the field of fluorescence imaging substantially by offering a versatile technique to obtain optical sectioning in large specimens with high speed and minimal phototoxicity. Still, one of the challenges is the customization and dissemination of the technology. In this seminar Jan Huisken will give an introduction to light sheet microscopy, show a few applications in zebrafish and explain the concept and implementation of the Flamingo framework, a modular shareable light sheet microscope.
