Light sheet fluorescence microscopy images the beating heart of a 2 days old zebrafish embryo over extended periods of time, delivering maximal frame rates (80 to 100 fps) with only minimal light exposure. The 2-channel fluorescence image dataset shows blood vessels and the endocardium labeled in red, the myocardium in green.
