Free webinar: Prima – A new multiple color pulsed diode laser

Sneak peak with Product Manager Guillaume Delpont

When investigating a broad range of samples, researchers often need access to several excitation wavelengths. Buying multiple pulsed diode lasers or even a tunable laser can be quite expensive. PicoQuant’s solution for this challenge? The new compact, stand alone laser module Prima, which offers three individual emission wavelengths and can be operated either in picosecond pulsed or continuous wave mode. Join our Product Manager Guillaume Delpont for a sneak peak at this powerful yet affordable laser module in a free webinar.

First MicroTime Virtual Showday

The potential of single molecule lifetime measurements

We are pleased to announce our very first MicroTime Virtual Showday. Join us if you are interested in learning more about the potential of single molecule lifetime measurements to advance your research and about the unique performance of our confocal microscope, the MicroTime 200. Our experts Olaf Schulz and Mathias Bayer will demonstrate how easily rapidFLIM, FLIM-FRET, smFRET and FC(C)S data can be acquired and analyzed, as well as answering any questions that might arise.

Date: Thursday, September 16, 2021
Two time slots: 10:00 am and at 3:00 pm (CEST
Registration: simply send an email to info@picoquant.com

Reserve about an hour and a half for the event.

PicoQuant and Seven Solutions jointly release white paper on synchronizing TCSPC units in a White Rabbit timing network

Free paper demonstrates impact of synchronization on time accuracy of MultiHarp devices connected by switches

In a recent paper, researchers from PicoQuant have demonstrated that synchronizing Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) devices in a White Rabbit timing network has only a negligible effect on their time accuracy. Multiple devices from PicoQuant’s MultiHarp product line were connected using Low Jitter White Rabbit switches from Seven Solutions the leading manufacturer of White Rabbit components. The authors have investigated how various network topologies, optical fiber lengths, and presence of Ethernet traffic affects the time accuracy of connected MultiHarp 150 and MultiHarp 160 devices.

Invited webinar with Prof. Ben Schuler

Probing dynamics and interactions of IDP

The next renowned scientist in our ongoing series of free webinars is Prof. Ben Schuler from the University of Zürich (Switzerland). He will illustrate how the combination of single-molecule Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) with nanosecond correlation spectroscopy, microfluidic mixing, and other methods can be used to probe the intra- and intermolecular distance distributions, reconfiguration dynamics, and interactions over a wide range of timescales, and in heterogeneous environments, including live cells.

25 years of PicoQuant – Excellency in photonic components and instrumentation

A look back on becoming market leader in time-resolved optical measurements while not forgetting social responsibility

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Berlin-based PicoQuant, a worldwide leader in the development and manufacturing of high quality photonic components and instrumentation. “It has been an exciting and successful journey for us at PicoQuant. When we started in 1996, I could not imagine that we would – one day – be a company with globally over 125 employees. I am also very proud, that we are successfully making complex scientific applications accessible to researchers all over the world,” says Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director and one of the company founders.
