Fluorescence light-sheet microscopy is increasingly adopted by developmental biologists to study how cells divide and differentiate to form organs and even entire organisms. The light-sheet microscope differs from a conventional microscope in that the specimen is illuminated by a plane of light orthogonal to the detection axis, thus keeping the out-of-focus areas dark while minimizing any potentially detrimental exposure of the sample. The light-sheet microscope has been found to be the ideal instrument for long-term and non-invasive studies of intact, and therefore three-dimensional, fluorescent samples.
