ZEISS shakes hands with PicoQuant – new software integration

Time-resolved data acquisition from PicoQuant’s LSM Upgrade Kits is now integrated into the ZEN software from ZEISS

ZEISS has recently developed and released a Handshake plug-in for their ZEISS ZEN imaging software. This plug-in enables acquiring time-resolved data with PicoQuant’s LSM Upgrade Kit within the familiar ZEISS ZEN environment. This integration provides you with a further way to optimize your Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) or Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) measurement workflow. The subsequent data analysis is performed employing the powerful and versatile tools provided by PicoQuant’s SymPhoTime 64 software package.
