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.

Probing the Dynamics and Interaction Mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins with Single-Molecule Spectroscopy

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.

PicoQuant improves the MultiHarp 150’s temporal resolution

Latest firmware and software updates improve the temporal resolution to 5 ps for the high-throughput multichannel event timer

PicoQuant is releasing a free firmware update for several models of its MultiHarp 150 high-throughput multichannel event timers. A major feature of this update is the improvement of the temporal resolution from 10 to 5 ps for the MultiHarp 150 4P, 8P, and 16P, without affecting other parameters like the excellent data throughput or the system's ultrashort dead time. Another new feature the update provides is a programmable input hysteresis for noise suppression in difficult environments. These MultiHarp 150 models provide the best temporal resolution on the market for event timers featuring sub-nanosecond dead time, which makes these devices an ideal choice of TCSPC electronics for fast and precise fluorescence lifetime imaging (rapidFLIM) and high throughput multichannel photon correlation.
