Zebrafish, Brain (in vivo)

Transgenic embryo, Danio rerio; GFP; Epithalamus; Optic Tectum. The images illustrate the zoom flexibility of Leica HCS LSI: The optical zoom is used first, then a combination of optical and confocal zoom is applied. The image shows a maximum projection of a 3D stack using a Leica Z6 APO A optical zoom and 5x objective.

Multiwell assay

Brain research: automated 4D imaging discloses the spatio-temporal dynamics of fluorescent signals throughout development.

4D series of 2 day old zebrafish embryos, Danio rerio. Ventral views of embryonic brains of the ETvmat2:gfp stable transgenic line were automatically acquired every 38 min. GFP: neurons in the brain and expression in heart and blood vessels. The embryos were arrayed in 96-well plates. The regions of interest (brains) were manually selected using the Leica Mark & Find mode and imaged at high resolution.
