The vast diversity of biological samples and experimental requirements resulted in a variety of light sheet setups being developed over the last years.
To accommodate as many experiments as possible, the Flamingo supports multiple configurations. It will be possible to convert between all configurations with little effort by exchanging a few components.
The Flamingo in L-SPIM configuration, with the option of adding a second illumination arm (T-SPIM) and a second detection arm (X-SPIM).
The Flamingo in V-SPIM configuration.
