38 researchers from all over the world at PicoQuant’s fluorescence course
From November 4-7, 2019, PicoQuant held the 17th edition of its yearly course on the “Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence” in Berlin. The 38 participants from all over the world greatly appreciated the inspiring lectures by Prof. Joseph R. Lakowicz from the Center of Fluorescence Spectroscopy (CFS, Baltimore, USA), Prof. Zygmunt “Karol” Gryczynski from the Texas Christian University (Texas, USA), and Prof. Nikolai Tkachenko from the Tampere University (Finland).
The attendees and lecturers also got a first look at PicoQuant’s new FluoMic add-on for the FluoTime 300 fluorescence spectrometer. This add-on enables measuring steady-state and time-resolved spectra from a small point of interest (down to 2 µm) on a remote sample located, for example, in a microscope.
Both the lectures and complementary practical sessions using instruments from Agilent Technologies and PicoQuant helped participants in gaining an in-depth understanding of fluorescence spectroscopy and its application in Materials and Life Sciences. The course program was rounded out by a welcoming reception as well as a dinner, which gave attendees ample opportunities for discussing and networking in an informal atmosphere.
