Lightsheet microscopy is rapidly becoming an important tool for biological research. Among its strengths are high speed selective plane acquisition, low phototoxicity to samples and low photo bleaching of fluorophores. There are a variety of lightsheet schemes that enable researchers to answer new questions in live cell imaging at scales that range from individual cells to whole organisms.
