PicoQuant and ZEISS simplify FLIM workflow for LSM Upgrade Kits

New plug-in allows to start FLIM acquisition directly in ZEN imaging software from ZEISS

PicoQuant and ZEISS have released a plug-in for ZEN (blue edition). It is now more convenient to obtain Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) and Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) data on a ZEISS Laser Scanning Microscope (LSM) with Upgrade Kit from PicoQuant.

Multidimensional imaging experiments such as z-stacks or time lapse series are now performed in a simple manner: users define and start these measurements in the familiar environment of ZEN imaging software from ZEISS. Time-resolved data is then automatically acquired using the motorized Laser Combining Unit and SymPhoTime 64 software from PicoQuant. After acquisition, the results can be analyzed with the powerful, yet easy to use SymPhoTime tools.

New article about the neuromonitor BabyLux

Downloadable for free at the SPIE library

The Neurophotonics Journal has just published a paper by the developers of the hybrid diffuse optical neuromonitor BabyLux. As a partner of the European project BabyLux, PicoQuant's Managing Director Rainer Erdmann is co-author of this paper which gives a thorough characterization about the performance of the device. The neuromonitor has been developed to be employed in neonatal intensive care units for the noninvasive, cot-side monitoring of microvascular cerebral blood flow and blood oxygenation in preterm neonates.

The project goal is to reduce the risk of brain lesions in extremely preterm babies. The core opto-electronic components necessary for this novel instrument are provided by PicoQuant.

The article can be downloaded for free at the SPIE library.
