PicoQuant releases a polarization extension for laser scanning microscopes

The new polarization unit allows to measure fluorescence anisotropy

PicoQuant GmbH has released a polarization extension for its upgrade kit for confocal laser scanning microscopes (LSM). Since several years, time-resolved fluorescence measurements can be performed with commercially available LSM that have been upgraded with a suited upgrade kit. With the new extension, upgraded microscopes can now also perform polarization measurements.

PicoQuant ist Konsortiumpartner des EU-Projektes „CHARMING“

Das Berliner Unternehmen beteiligt sich an der Entwicklung von Faserverstärkern für die hochauflösende Fluoreszenzspektroskopie

Die PicoQuant GmbH, Spezialistin auf dem Gebiet zeitaufgelöster Fluoreszenzsysteme und Pikosekunden-Laserdioden präsentiert sich als Partner des mit drei Millionen Euro geförderten Projektvorhabens „CHARMING“ der Europäischen Kommission. Ziel des Projektes ist die Entwicklung geeigneter Faserverstärker für gewinngeschaltete Infrarot- Laserdioden sowie eine anschließende Frequenzkonversion in neuartigen optischen Fasern. Anwendung soll die neue Lasertechnologie in der Fluoreszenzspektroskopie und der konfokalen Fluoreszenzmikroskopie finden. Startschuss für das Projekt war der 01. September 2011 und ist auf 3 Jahre Laufzeit festgesetzt.

PicoQuant combines optical microscope with atomic force microscope

The synchronized acquisition of fluorescence lifetime and atomic force images makes new investigation schemes feasible

PicoQuant GmbH, specialist in single photon counting applications, announces the successful combination of PicoQuants time-resolved confocal fluorescence microscope MicroTime 200 with Brukers BioScope Catalyst Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The combination of these two systems enables simultaneous recordings of AFM and optical images of the same sample region and makes new investigation schemes in the field of live cell imaging feasible.
