Registration & fusion of octopus-images
With a ZEISS Lightsheet Z.1 of Carl Zeiss microscopy GmbH images of an octopus has been acquired by a team of scientists at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology from different angles and with different lighting directions. These eight image data (about 30 GB) were registered and fused from da-cons. Furthermore, this sample was 3D printed and given the name "Oscar".

Registration & fusion of zebrafish-images
With a ZEISS Lightsheet Z.1 of Carl Zeiss microscopy GmbH images of a zebrafish has been acquired by a team of scientists at the MPI-CBG from four different angles and with different lighting directions (about 80 GB per timestep). To facilitate the registration, artificial beads are added nowadays. This will impede the process of sample preparation, image acquisition and image analysis. However, da-cons is succeeded to realize the registration WITHOUT these artificial pearls. Consequently, experiments and recordings by ZEISS Lightsheet Z.1 would be conceivable without beads and with the methods of as-cons.
