Time-Resolved Spectroscopy for Bioanalytical Applications
Time-Resolved Spectroscopy for Bioanalytical Applications: Advanced Time-Domain Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Microscopy (FLIM, FRET, FCS & SMD)
Thursday, August 30, 2007
Joint workshop between PicoQuant GmbH and the Center for Commercialization of Fluorescence Technologies at the University of North Texas Health Science Center
The workshop was dedicated to interested students and scientists from Life Sciences having a certain background in fluorescence and confocal microscopy and looking to extend their knowledge to the benefits of time-resolved methods. In the afternoon we provided the opportunity to see state-of-the-art instruments working and gave a detailed explanation of key features by highly recognized instructors.
Product demos that where offered included:
- MicroTime 200: time-resolved confocal microscope with single molecule sensitivity
- FluoTime 200: modular fluorescence lifetime spectrometer
- SPCE-Setup: Surface Plasmons Assisted Microscopy (SPAM) combines time-resolved microscopy with nanotechnologies, utilizing surface plasmon resonance (SPR) excitation and surface plasmons-coupled emission (SPCE).
