Max Planck scientists image a beating heart in 3D.

Until recently, available microscopes were too slow to capture a beating heart in 3D. Now, a team from the Max Planck Institute has developed a high-speed, selective plane illumination microscope that manages to do just that. By gently illuminating the fish heart with a thin light sheet and observing the emitted fluorescence with a fast and sensitive camera the researchers
