The FLIMbee: fast scanning add-on for PicoQuant’s MicroTime 200 platform

The new galvo scanner add-on FLIMbee provides outstanding flexibility in scanning speed

The FLIMbee galvo scanner add-on has been released for the MicroTime 200 time-resolved microscopy platform by PicoQuant. This new scanner provides an outstanding flexibility in scanning speed, ranging from very slow to fast, while maintaining the excellent spatial precision of the MicroTime 200. The FLIMbee is designed to minimize vignetting of the image field and to ensure a constant focal volume over a wide scan range.

PicoQuant releases 560 nm laser for applications in Life Science

The new picosecond pulsed laser emits light in the yellow-green spectral range ideal for the excitation of many molecular probes

PicoQuant has released a laser head that emits laser pulses at 560 nm. The fiber amplified laser head LDH-P-FA-560 delivers average optical powers of more than 3 mW at a repetition rate of 40 MHhz with pulse widths down to 40 ps. The new laser nicely rounds out PicoQuant’s range of picosecond pulsed laser sources in the yellow-green spectral range. The LDH-P-FA-560 is fully compatible with all laser drivers from PicoQuant’s PDL Series. The collimated free beam output can optionally be coupled into an optical fiber.

PicoQuant releases new version of the EasyTau software

The system software now supports remote control options, especially for controlling a liquid handling automation workstation

PicoQuant has released a new version of the system software EasyTau for the fluorescence lifetime spectrometer FluoTime 300. A major focus of this release lies on the integration of interfaces allowing remote execution of scripts written in the EasyTau scripting language to control third-party accessories such as, e.g., the liquid handling automation workstation Biomek NXP from Beckman-Coulter.
