PicoQuant releases microbiologist from his work to help in the fight against COVID-19

Being a reserve officer Dr. Fabian Jolmes has been asked by the Bundeswehr for temporal support in the Bundeswehr Hospital

Dr. Fabian Jolmes, microbiologist and application specialist for confocal microscopy at PicoQuant will be on a temporal leave for several months to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Being a reserve officer of the Federal Defence Forces of Germany (Bundeswehr) he has been asked for his support in the execution and evaluation of COVID-19 tests. Supporting such an important social task is a matter of course for us at PicoQuant. Managing Director Rainer Erdmann did not hesitate a second to approve Fabians release from his regular work when the request from the Bundeswehr arrived. Fabian started his work in the department of microbiology of the Bundeswehr Hospital in Berlin this week - Stay healthy Fabian!

PicoQuant combines high timing precision with ultrashort dead time

New versions of the high-throughput multichannel event timer MultiHarp 150 with 10 ps digital resolution are now available

PicoQuant releases three new models of the high-throughput multichannel event timer MultiHarp 150: MultiHarp 150 4P, 8P, and 16P. The units with either 4, 8, or 16 detection channels offer improved timing precision with 10 ps minimum bin width, along with jitter better than 45 ps (root mean square). This is the best time resolution for event timers with sub-nanosecond dead time available on the market. The new MultiHarp 150 models are PicoQuant's latest benchmark TCSPC electronics for fast and high-resolution fluorescence lifetime imaging (rapidFLIM) and multichannel photon correlation.

Our support team offers remote demos

Demos of our spectroscopy and microscopy systems and their respective software

As we may not travel to our customers nor receive visitors right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our support team offers individual remote demos of our spectroscopy and microscopy systems and their respective software. A demo session can include a short introduction to the hardware as well as an introduction to methodologies such as FLIM, FCS, Pattern Matching. Sessions tailored to the needs of current users of our hardware are also available.

Simply contact our support team to make an appointment: http://www.picoquant.com/remote_demos

Series of free webinars

Picosecond pulsed lasers, time-resolved data acquisition, single photon counting, and fluorescence instrumentation

Due to the spread of COVID-19, we can not meet our customers in person right now at exhibitions, conferences, and personal appointments. However, as we like to stay in touch, we decided to organize a series of free webinars. Our webinars focus on how picosecond pulsed lasers, time-resolved data acquisition, single photon counting, and fluorescence instrumentation can bring your research further. Last week, Product Manager Christian Oelsner started the series with a seminar on materials science. He demonstrated various spectroscopy and microscopy tools and methods that enable the user to find out more about the luminescence properties of the samples as well as their dynamics.

Paper on photon arrival time tagging

Published by PicoQuant and the Charité Universitätsmedizin

Our senior scientist Michael Wahl, Andreas Hocke from the Charité Universitätsmedizin and their research teams have recently published design features and benchmark results for the MultiHarp 150, which is PicoQuant’s high-throughput multichannel event timer and TCSPC unit. The paper presents not only results from spectrally resolved, high speed lifetime imaging applications but also a way to correct for the pulse-pile-up occurring at high photon flux.

The paper was published in Review of Scientific Instruments: https://aip.scitation.org/doi/abs/10.1063/1.5121412
