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).
