Brad Amos looks on as the laser-scanning Mesolens produces its first 3D image of a whole mouse embryo, with detail up to the cellular level. The Mesolens is a giant microscope lens 70cm long and 8cm in diameter, with a 6mm field of view. It produces 3D images of the whole organism with cellular detail. The enormous amount of information in a Mesolens image will speed up the process of drug discovery and make a huge impact in the fight against disease.
