Young students get acquainted with fluorescence microscopy

Girls' Day 2018

Last week two groups of young females (age 10 and up) visited the premises of PicoQuant during this years Girls’ Day and met women in leadership positions in both research and business. The other highlight of the tour was the hands-on workshop where the girls learned about how to “make the invisible visible” thanks to fluorescence and light microscopy. The Girls’ Day is a yearly event hosted in Germany by research institutes and companies alike from the technical sector with the aim of enabling young females to gain insights into professions where women are still underrepresented.

10th European Short Course on “Time-resolved Microscopy and Correlation Spectroscopy”

The course held by PicoQuant offered an in-depth introduction into time-resolved microscopy techniques

The 10th edition of this course, held from March 6-8, 2018 in Berlin was highly appreciated and found to be inspiring by the 40 participants from universities and industry. Six lectures and five hands-on sessions with instruments from major microscopy companies including Nikon, Olympus, PicoQuant, and Zeiss were given. These sessions covered different methods and procedures used in time-resolved fluorescence microscopy such as FLIM / rapidFLIM, FLIM-FRET, F(L)CS, PLIM for material science, single molecule spectroscopy, and STED super-resolution microscopy.

Best of two worlds: combining optical tweezers with time-resolved confocal microscopy

PicoQuant and Ionovation now offer an integrated platform that combines microscopy and force spectroscopy

As a joint development, PicoQuant and Ionovation combined time-resolved microscopy and optical tweezers in a single system. Both instruments retain their individual functionalities but can also be used together, thus enabling customers to carry out time-resolved fluorescence microscopy (e.g. fluorescence lifetime imaging) on trapped objects such as cells. PicoQuant and Ionovation will showcase the features of this combined system at the 62nd Biophysical Society Meeting in San Francisco (February 17- 21, 2018).
