20% discount: end-of-year deal on TimeHarp 260 event timers

Get a TCSPC card with all optional features for less than the corresponding base model

PicoQuant has an exciting end-of-year offer for researchers at an academic institution who are looking for high-quality time-resolved photon counting electronics. From October 15 to December 31, 2020, all purchase orders for a TimeHarp 260 event timer with all optional features will be discounted by 20%*. Thus the full package will be less expensive than the corresponding base model.

The TimeHarp 260 is a high-quality, compact Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) and time-tagging PCIe 2.0 board used in research labs all over the world.

*The 20% discount only applies to researchers in academia. It only applies to TimeHarp 260 PICO or NANO boards (in either Single and Dual channel configuration) that are ordered with all add-ons (i.e. programming libraries or long range mode, if applicable) available for the corresponding card. Note that this discount does NOT apply to any TimeHarp 260 card included in a spectroscopy or microscopy system from PicoQuant.

PicoQuant GmbH strengthens local presence in China

Chinese customers benefit from a website in Chinese and a strong local presence

To better serve its growing Chinese customer base, PicoQuant GmbH now has an official Chinese website that offers first-hand information about PicoQuant products and applications. Together with 20 trained sales and support staff on site in Wuhan at the established showroom, the Chinese community’s needs can now be optimally served. In addition to competent consulting and service, customers can arrange for local demonstrations of components like picosecond pulsed lasers and time-correlated single photon counting units and also perform test measurements and gain in-depth experience on the FluoTime series of time-resolved spectrometers or the confocal fluorescence microscopy platform MicroTime 200.

New potential techniques for neuromonitoring using PicoQuant instrumentation

In a recently published paper the authors show how NIRS/DCS can accurately monitor cerebral blood flow and metabolism

In a recent open access paper in Neurophotonics, our customer Keith St Lawrence and his research team demonstrate how signal contamination stemming from the skin can be reduced during optical measurements of cerebral blood flow and metabolism. Their work shows how one can accurately monitor these parameters by enhancing Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) and Diffuse Correlation Spectroscopy (DCS) with time-resolved and multi distance approaches, respectively.

Contgratulations to Keith and his team for this great paper! For us at PicoQuant, it is always a pleasure to see how time-resolved instrumentation such as our picosecond event timer and TCSPC module HydraHarp 400 can improve our world.

The complete paper is available at the Neurophotonics website
