ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7

Join us at the UCL-ZEISS Multiscale Imaging Centre to learn about and experience our latest technology

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.

  • Live imaging of whole oocytes in 3D with subcellular detail

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.
