 The diSPIM "head" can be mounted on various inverted microscopes including ASI's RAMM frame (shown here). diSPIM systems can be obtained from various [[docs:system integrators]].  Various open-source and proprietary software packages are available for both data acquisition and data processing. Most of the underlying microscope hardware is identical regardless of the system integrator and software used. The diSPIM "head" can be mounted on various inverted microscopes including ASI's RAMM frame (shown here). diSPIM systems can be obtained from various [[docs:system integrators]].  Various open-source and proprietary software packages are available for both data acquisition and data processing.

-The choice of diSPIM objectives is limited because they must be co-focused without bumping into each other.  The most commonly-used objectives for diSPIM are 40x water-dipping objectives with a NA of 0.8 (Nikon CFI Apo 40XW NIR).  The Olympus 20x/0.5 objective is another possibility((According to the manufacturer's drawings the objectives co-focus exactly when they touch, which also implies zero gap between objective and coverslip. However, in practice they co-focus with a gap comparable to the 40x/0.8, with ~200um between the objective bottom and coverslip.)) as is the Nikon 10x/0.3.  ASI and Special Optics have co-developed an [[http://asiimaging.com/docs/cleared_tissue_objective|custom objective for cleared tissue]] that is suitable for the diSPIM and can image cleared tissue up to 5 mm deep in slab form or within a 12 mm spherical envelope.  Single-sided systems (iSPIM) have much more flexibility because the illumination objective can be a low-NA long-WD objective.+The choice of diSPIM objectives is limited because they must be co-focused without bumping into each other.  The most commonly-used objectives for diSPIM are 40x water-dipping objectives with a NA of 0.8 (Nikon CFI Apo 40XW NIR).  The Olympus 20x/0.5 objective is another possibility((According to the manufacturer's drawings the objectives co-focus exactly when they touch, which also implies zero gap between objective and coverslip.

 Most often sCMOS cameras are used for SPIM imaging.  There are working diSPIM systems with Hamamatsu Flash4, Andor Zyla, PCO Edge, and Photometrics Prime 95B cameras. Most often sCMOS cameras are used for SPIM imaging.  There are working diSPIM systems with Hamamatsu Flash4, Andor Zyla, PCO Edge, and Photometrics Prime 95B cameras.
