Researchers report in bioRxiv that they combined lattice light sheet microscopy, which increases the speed of image acquisition and reduces phototoxic damage to cells, with two-channel adaptive optics to image multiple cellular processes in vivo. Here, cells divide in a 1-micrometer-thick slab of a zebrafish eye.
