A new 3D microscope can image biological processes much faster than 2D microscopes, according to European researchers.
A team from an international research group, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), developed the new light-field microscopy system to improve humans’ ability to study biology in action.
“Many important biological processes occur in three dimensions and on millisecond timescales,” said researcher Lars Hufnagel in a news release. “Capturing these fast processes is a big challenge in biology. And showing them not only in 2D but in 3D is, next to the needed high resolution, the second main aspect of modern microscopy.”
