About the Luxendo

The Bruker Luxendo Light Sheet microscope uses a sheet of laser light to illuminate a thin slice of your sample. Objectives places perpendicular to the light sheet collect fluorescence signal which is then imaged with a pair of high speed sCMOS cameras. The benefit of imaging with a light sheet is a drastic reduction in photobleaching and phototoxicity. The gentle sample handling of the Luxendo is especially useful for long-term 3D imaging of specimens such as larvae, embryos, organoids, etc. The liquid-filled specimen chamber is filled with aqueous media/buffer and can be heated or cooled.
