Best of two worlds: combining optical tweezers with time-resolved confocal microscopy

PicoQuant and Ionovation now offer an integrated platform that combines microscopy and force spectroscopy

As a joint development, PicoQuant and Ionovation combined time-resolved microscopy and optical tweezers in a single system. Both instruments retain their individual functionalities but can also be used together, thus enabling customers to carry out time-resolved fluorescence microscopy (e.g. fluorescence lifetime imaging) on trapped objects such as cells. PicoQuant and Ionovation will showcase the features of this combined system at the 62nd Biophysical Society Meeting in San Francisco (February 17- 21, 2018).

Season’s greetings from PicoQuant

We wish you and your relatives a joyous and peaceful holiday season and happy new year

Since the satisfaction of our customers is the foundation of our success, it is with great pleasure that we can say “thank you” during this holiday season for your pleasant and trustful cooperation throughout this year. We wish you and your relatives a merry holiday time and the best of health, happiness, and success for 2018.

Commitment and social responsibility are two core values of PicoQuant, which lead us to financially support several foundations and charities throughout the year, including Unicef, the Jose Carreras and the Rainforest Foundations.

Our ongoing success as a premiere developer and manufacturer of high-end time-resolved systems, TCSPC electronics, and laser components would not have been possible without our team of outstanding co-workers. We’d like to take the time to thank them for the excellent work, dedication, and inspired ideas.

Following tradition, our Christmas Elves have been hard at work ordering, packing and wrapping gifts for the youngest members of the PicoQuant family. The resulting colorful pile of presents will fulfill many a child’s wish during this holiday season.

Season’s greetings from PicoQuant
