Single Molecule Fluorescence Workshop

2nd Hands-On Workshop on
"Making Single Molecule Fluorescence (Lifetime) Measurements Simple"

January 18-19, 2007 in Sacramento, USA

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

Image Single Molecule Fluorescence Workshop 2007


The second workshop of its kind was a real success and the registration had to be closed fairly in advance. Finally, more than 50 researches participated in this event and enjoyed 11 lectures as well as hands-on experimentation on a MicroTime 200, a FluoView 1000 from Olympus upgraded to FLIM & FCS capabilities as well as a LIFA System for widefield FLIM measurements from Lambert Instruments. As in the last year, up-to-date research topics in single molecule spectroscopy were covered and new exciting methods were discussed. This workshop was again the perfect event to start networking and for many nice discussions about new interesting ideas and concept.
