C. elegans Imaging with Light-Sheet Microscopy

Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) is an ideal model organism for the study of embryonic development as well as ageing processes. Due to its transparency and small size, every cell in the embryo can be followed optically throughout development. This, in combination with fluorescent labeling and advanced imaging techniques enables conducting detailed embryogenesis, gene expression, and neurodevelopment analyses.

Light-sheet microscopy makes the best out of your C. elegans imaging studies. It features very low phototoxic and photobleaching effects, as well as high spatial and temporal resolution for long-term imaging of live 3D samples.

The Luxendo portfolio of light-sheet microscopes is built around your sample to better adjust to your experimental needs. Whether you need isotropic resolution, full environmental control, photo-manipulation or multi-sample analysis, we definitely have a light-sheet solution for you!

C. elegans Lineage Tracing

The histone marker (H2A::mCherry, purple) and the membrane marker (cnd-1::GFP, green) were used for lineage tracing in C. elegans. Imaged on the QuVi SPIM.
