PicoQuant releases new version of the EasyTau software

The system software now supports remote control options, especially for controlling a liquid handling automation workstation

PicoQuant has released a new version of the system software EasyTau for the fluorescence lifetime spectrometer FluoTime 300. A major focus of this release lies on the integration of interfaces allowing remote execution of scripts written in the EasyTau scripting language to control third-party accessories such as, e.g., the liquid handling automation workstation Biomek NXP from Beckman-Coulter.

Season’s greetings from PicoQuant

We wish all customers and business partners a peaceful holiday season and a happy new year

We thank you all for the pleasant and trusting collaboration throughout the past year and wish you and your relatives a joyous and peaceful holiday season and for the year 2017 health, good fortune, and success.

Assuming social responsibility and commitment are a guiding principle at PicoQuant. Following this principle, we financially support projects that have a social or charitable character every year. This year, we ran a donation campaign to fund a PhD position at the University of Würzburg, Germany aimed at investigating Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a genetic childern's disease that is not yet curable.

A further tradition at PicoQuant is to give Christmas gifts to all children of the employees. PicoQuant's Christmas elves have assiduously ordering, packing, tying and wrapping again within the weeks before Christmas. The result is a colorful pile of packages that will fulfill many children's wishes.

PicoQuant Combines Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Microscopy

Novel fiber coupling sample holder opens new opportunities for investigating spatial dependence of luminescence behavior

PicoQuant has released a new fiber coupling sample holder for the modular time-resolved spectrometer FluoTime 300. This holder makes it possible to interface the system with a microscope such as the MicroTime 100. This set-up easily allows users to record time- and space-resolved emission spectra from any sample mounted in the microscope.

PicoQuant – Counting Photons since 20 Years

PicoQuant celebrates 20 years of excellence in time-resolved optical instrumentation

In 1996, four young scientists and engineers set themselves the goal to develop optical instrumentation designed by scientists for scientists and thus founded the company PicoQuant. Support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, “futour”), from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as well as from the Investitionsbank Berlin (IBB) enabled PicoQuant to kick start its success story, which has now been running for more than 20 years. Over the years, the company created many highly qualified, long-term jobs in Berlin-Adlershof, the economic and scientific center of Germany's capital city.
