8th European Short Course on “Time-resolved Microscopy and Correlation Spectroscopy”

March 8-10, 2016 in Berlin, Germany

Image Time-Resolved Microscopy Course 2016 2016


This year's course was the eighth in the series and was fully booked with 42 participants from academia and industry. All participants found the course a very valuable and inspiring event. The six lectures given in the morning were accompanied by hands-on sessons provided by the major microscopy companies Leica, Nikon, Olympus, PicoQuant, and Zeiss. The sessions covered different methods and procedures in time-resolved fluorescence microscopy such as FLIM, FLIM-FRET, FCS, FLCS, as well as single molecule and STED super-resolution microscopy.

Aims and Purpose

The course provided an in-depth introduction to the principles of time-resolved fluorescence microscopy and its applications to the life sSciences. Attendees were typically professionals who are using or intend to use fluorescence microscopy in their research. Most attendees have some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area. However, other individuals, from totally different research areas and industry, got the opportunity to enter this exciting field in a very effective way and benefited especially from the hands-on training sessions.

Hands-on instrumentation

The following companies provided hands-on experiments during the course:

  • Leica
  • Nikon
  • Olympus
  • PicoQuant
  • Zeiss
