The transparent organism: EMBLEM and Carl Zeiss give labs a unique look at life

...sible to make three-dimensional films of the inner workings of living organisms at a much higher level of detail than ever before. One innovation of SPIM is the illumination of a sample from the side rather than along the traditional view of the microscope lens. This eliminates a problem that has plagued thr...
