Repurposing an Image Cytometer to create a Light Sheet Microscope

Is anyone familiar with the iCyte imaging system that is currently owned by Thor Labs? Our lab owns an old iCyte system that no longer functions and we are curious if it is possible to repurpose it to create our own OpenSPIM light sheet microscope from the spare parts (ie. lasers, camera, objectives, filters, etc.).

If anyone has any experience with both instruments and would be willing to share some insights we would really appreciate it.

Thanks!
