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.

Tunable bandpass filter available for the MicroTime 200

Filters offer wavelength tunability over a wide range of wavelengths

Please note: as of 2019, these filters have been discontinued by the manufacturer Semrock. They are no longer available.

Tunable bandpass filters are now available for the MicroTime 200. The tunable bandpass filters can be inserted in the detection beam path of the MicroTime 200. They offer wavelength tunability over a wide range of wavelengths by manually adjusting the angle of incidence. Different filters cover the wavelength from 440 nm to 700 nm with a fixed spectral bandpass around 17 nm.

Course on fluorescence microscopy in Singapore meets with great interest

The five day event gave participants an introduction to various fluorescence microscopy techniques and their application

From June 20 to 24, 2011 PicoQuant GmbH, EINST Technology Pte Ltd. and the Institute of Medical Biology Microscopy Unit (IMU) held a course on "F-techniques: FCS, FCCS, FLCS, FRET, FLIM and FRAP" in Singapore. 44 participants and 18 instructors gathered at the IMU, which is based in Biopolis, a research and development center for biomedical sciences in Singapore. Renowned international researchers from the fields of fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy gave an in-depth introduction to the different F-techniques and their application to the Life Sciences.
