Kidney cells from a monkey labelled with UtrCH-GFP (pre-fixation) and Phalloidin-AF647 (post-fixation)ALMADA & PEREIRA ET AL.

In a preprint published in bioRxiv on Monday (May 14), researchers describe an open-source system that can create multimodal fluorescence imaging of cells. In the study, they snapped images and videos of cells derived from monkey kidney tissue. The system includes ImageJ-based software and hardware built with Lego bricks.
