Welcome to the X-OpenSPIM site on!

Here we provide new instructions and guides on how to assemble, configure, and align an X-OpenSPIM, together with a completely overhauled software plugin μOpenSPIM. This makes it easier and less time-consuming for OpenSPIM users to upgrade to a more advanced OpenSPIM system and use it as a powerful research tool in their laboratories.
