SymPhoTime 64 – new software version released

Novel reconvolution fitting models for rapidFLIM measurements involving multi exponential lifetime decays

PicoQuant is releasing a new version of the SymPhoTime 64 fluorescence imaging and correlation software package for the time-resolved MicroTime 200 microscopy platform. Beyond regular fixes and improvements, this update includes a special highlight for rapidFLIM users. Novel reconvolution fitting models (patent pending) are now included for correcting detector pulse pile up occurring in fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) experiments performed at high count rates. These new models extend accurate fitting and analysis of rapidFLIM data to cases where multi exponential lifetime decays are involved.

Automating time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy

PicoQuant's FluoTime 300 spectrometer can now be connected to external accessories

One of the most valuable tools for a spectroscopist is time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, as it allows investigating excited state dynamics in molecules, complexes, or semiconductors. A recent software upgrade adding a remote interface to PicoQuant’s modular FluoTime 300 spectrometer makes it possible to interface it with external accessories, such as the liquid handling automation workstation Biomek NXP from Beckman-Coulter.
