Picture Contest at Photonics West

The winners will have their Photonics West attendance fees refunded

Due to the circumstances, our traditional Young Investigator Award will not be awarded during the BiOS session on Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Superresolution Imaging. Instead, we will hold a picture contest. Three young researchers (< 35 years) will have their SPIE attendance fees refunded by PicoQuant. To enter the contest, send a selfie with your PicoQuant product along with your contact details, and a short description (~100 words) of what you are currently working on to events@picoquant.com before March 8, 2021.The lucky winners will be announced on March 10, 2021.

PicoQuant presents latest developments at the virtual Photonics West 2021

Highlights are the MultiHarp 160, a scalable multichannel event timer and the improved rapidFLIM HiRes imaging method

PicoQuant has quite a few treats in store for attendees of this year’s virtual SPIE Photonics West (March 6–11, 2021). A major highlight is the launch of the latest multichannel event timer: The MultiHarp 160, a plug-and-play time tagger and Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) unit that is optimized for applications requiring up to 64 timing channels with an outstanding time resolution of 5 ps and ultra short dead time of less than 650 ps. Another highlight is the improved rapidFLIMHiRes approach that enables

PicoQuant heads BMBF funded project NG-FLIM

New microscopy methods for identifying cancer cells to be researched in this project

The project "Next Generation FLIM for Life Cell and Tissue Imaging" (NG-FLIM) aims to research how a high-resolution optical microscope system can be used for cancer diagnostics. The pursued approach combines different optical methods along with deep-learning based automated data analysis and new labeling strategies. Rainer Erdmann, managing director of PicoQuant GmbH, says: "Our goal is a microscopy system with a high degree of reliable automation ranging from system alignment to data analysis, that is easy to use for many medical users". NanoTag Biotechnologies GmbH, arivis AG, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, as well as Universitätsmedizin Göttingen are members of the project consortium along with PicoQuant GmbH.

Funded by the BMBF in the program "Photonics  Research Germany" (project 13N15324)
