Fruit fly embryo under lightsheet microscopy

A short video that I made about the embryonic development of the likeable Drosophila, also known as fruit fly or vinegar fly, won an honorable mention in the Small World in Motion.

A single embryo imaged from four different angles.

The details on the techniques I used and the video on its full resolution are available for download and re-use on the Wikimedia Commons.

A typical lightsheet microscopy session

Here is how a typical session of imaging embryos under Lightsheet Microscopy goes. A glimpse into my day-to-day work 🙂

Assemble the incubation chamber:

Collect and mount the embryos:
