Lift the veil on live cell imaging with a Lattice Lightsheet Microscopy seminar on your campus

The ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 couples cutting edge live cell imaging capabilities with the ease of use you expect from ZEISS. Redefining imaging speed to volumes per second and offering unrivalled gentleness for your live cell experiments. The volumetric imaging at subcellular resolution allows exquisite exploration of dynamics in live samples. The system has been specially designed to work with a range of standard sample carriers, such as slides, dishes and chamber slides, letting you focus on the science, instead of the sample preparation.

Seminar: Lattice Lightsheet 7

We’d like to introduce you to the ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 and its features. In our bespoke seminar for your facility, learn about the Lattice Lightsheet principle and its advantages for 3D imaging of subcellular dynamics. We’ll provide insights into the technology’s development process and delve into what the ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 can deliver for your applications.

Location: Your Campus
Speaker: Jonathan Shewring, Product & Sales Support Specialist, ZEISS

ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 at Work


Human induced pluripotent stem cells which endogenously express mEGFP-tagged lamin B1 (AICS-0013). Images generated using AICS-0013 (LMNB1-mEGFP) from the Allen Institute for Cell Science. The overnight experiment was recorded for close to 8 hours with one volume imaged every 1.5 min.

Lamin B1 is involved in disassembling and reforming the nuclear envelope during mitosis. The formation of so-called ‘nuclear invaginations’ has been reported frequently during mitotic events. However, most research so far on these unique structures has been done with fixed cells and as a result their function is largely unknown.

The data observes cells going through mitosis throughout the whole duration. The formation and dynamics of nuclear invaginations can clearly be observed in most of the cells, throughout the complete cell cycle. The gentleness of Lattice Lightsheet 7 imaging enables imaging of mitotic events over longer time periods, preventing arrest from excitation light. Combined with the fast volumetric imaging and near-isotropic resolution the ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 is the perfect tool for challenging experiments like this.
