Single Molecule Fluorescence Workshop

4th Hands-On Workshop on
"Making Single Molecule Fluorescence (Lifetime) Measurements Simple"

January 22 - 23, 2009 in Sacramento, USA

Joint workshop between PicoQuant GmbH and the Center for Biophotonics at UC Davis

Image Single Molecule Fluorescence Workshop 2009


The fourth workshop of its kind was a real success. Finally, nearly 40 researches participated in this event and enjoyed 14 lectures as well as hands-on experimentation on a MicroTime 200, a FluoView 300 from Olympus upgraded to FLIM & FCS capabilities as well as a time-resolved CARS setup. Up-to-date research topics in single molecule spectroscopy were covered and new exciting methods were discussed.
