PicoQuant heads BMBF funded project NG-FLIM
The project "Next Generation FLIM for Life Cell and Tissue Imaging" (NG-FLIM) aims to research how a high-resolution optical microscope system can be used for cancer diagnostics. The pursued approach combines different optical methods along with deep-learning based automated data analysis and new labeling strategies. Rainer Erdmann, managing director of PicoQuant GmbH, says: "Our goal is a microscopy system with a high degree of reliable automation ranging from system alignment to data analysis, that is easy to use for many medical users". NanoTag Biotechnologies GmbH, arivis AG, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, as well as Universitätsmedizin Göttingen are members of the project consortium along with PicoQuant GmbH.
Funded by the BMBF in the program "Photonics Research Germany" (project 13N15324)
