#1 - Helmchen Lab, Brain Research Institute, University of Zurich, Switzerland
The oldest mesoSPIM saw first light in October 2015 (as a Version 0). The most recent upgrade in May 2018 brought it up to Version 4. The microscope is accessible within collaborations with the Helmchen lab.
#3 - Advanced Lightsheet Imaging Center, Wyss Center, Geneva, Switzerland
The first mesoSPIM outside of Zurich saw first light as a Version 4 in March 2018. It is open to users from both academia and industry. The facility also contains a CLARITY-optimized light-sheet microscope (COLM) for high-resolution imaging.
#5 - Advanced Microscopy Facility, Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, London, UK
The fifth mesoSPIM (and the first outside of Switzerland) became operational in December 2018.
#6 - Aguzzi Lab, Institute of Neuropathology, University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland
The first mesoSPIM V5 was set up in early August 2019. Together with mesoSPIM #2, it forms a high-throughput imaging platform.
#9 - Ertürk lab at the Institute for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Helmholtz Center Munich, Germany
The instrument was built by Tzu-Lun Wang, Mihail Todorov and Fabian F. Voigt and took its first images on November 8th, 2019.
