LSFM first appeared in 1994 as orthogonal plane fluorescence optical sectioning microscopy and later improved with selective/single plane illumination microscopy (SPIM), which uses a laser beam, or circular beam, focused in single direction.
The first commercial LSFM instrument, the Lightsheet Z.1 from Carl Zeiss Microimaging GmbH, Thornwood, N.Y., was introduced late in 2012 and won a 2013 R&D 100 Award.
One application of LSFM
that is particularly suited to the study of single cells or small embryos (e.g., those of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans) is dual-view inverted selective plane illumination microscopy (diSPIM) (Wu et al., 2013; Kumar et al., 2014).
