Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (iSPIM/diSPIM)

Introducing the iSPIM & diSPIM systems from ASI (Applied Scientific Instrumentation, Inc. ) They include all of the necessary hardware for generating the light sheet from a laser, and for scanning the sample.

The systems for iSPIM focus the light sheet onto the sample with one objective & image with the other. The diSPIM systems can illuminate & image from both objectives. Both objectives can be moved very rapidly & precisely with one of their piezo objective movers. The scan head utilizes Micro-Mirrors for fast reliable & economical positioning of the illumination beam.

The components can be mounted onto the transmitted illumination pillar of an inverted microscope, or onto the ASI RAMM system. In this configuration a third objective can be used to image the sample from below.

LED Illumination
CoolLED pE-4000


The pE-4000 sets the standard as the universal illumination system for fluorescence microscopy.  The system has 16 selectable LED wavelengths that can be matched to the filters and fluorophores of almost any microscope, making it the broadest spectrum of illumination available.

For the user who wants consistency and ease of use with simple on/off and intensity buttons, the pE-4000 can be operated as a 'White' illumination system.
For the user who wants total control over the excitation source to improve imaging, individual wavelengths settings can be selected and controlled in "Advanced" mode.
