New microscope creates 3D images of cells and organs in real time

Researchers from the Madrid Carlos III University now have the ability to quickly obtain three-dimensional models of the studied objects. Through their microscope, they can see how, for example, beats the heart of a fish, and then to three-dimensional reconstruction .

Development allows you to shoot up to 200 frames per second, making the unit stands out among similar devices — the most modern devices of this kind, according to scientists, able to do no more than five pictures per second. The device is equipped with four lasers, but their number can increase to six. Thanks to these lasers, the device can highlight the cells of a different type without having to change them every time needed to observe the other cell.

To create a three-dimensional model, the microscope takes pictures from different positions, so all the lasers, cameras, filters, and engines are involved in this complex process, controlled by specific software that regulates the operation of the device, which the developers call «QI-scope». According to scientists, the microscope will allow the effective study living organisms without resorting to killing.
