Single Molecule Fluorescence Workshop

3rd Hands-On Workshop on
"Making Single Molecule Fluorescence (Lifetime) Measurements Simple"

January 17-18, 2008 in Sacramento, USA

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

Image Single Molecule Fluorescence Workshop 2008


The third workshop of its kind was again outstanding. Finally, nearly 50 researches participated in this event and enjoyed 16 lectures as well as hands-on experimentation on a MicroTime 200, a MicroTime 100, a FluoView 1000 from Olympus upgraded to FLIM & FCS capabilities as well as a time-resolved CARS setup. New research topics in single molecule spectroscopy were presented and establised as well as new emerging methods were discussed. This workshop was again the perfect event to start networking and for many nice discussions about new interesting ideas and concept.
