New version of the EasyTau software released

This new software version further expands the possibilities of its versatile scripting language and application wizards

PicoQuant has released a new version of the system software EasyTau for the FluoTime 300. This versions highlight is the expanded scripting language for the application wizards with improved code highlighting and auto completion. Furthermore, each wizard now creates a ready to use script containing all system and measurement settings used in the experiment, making it the ideal starting point for developing your own measurement ideas.

PicoQuant’s LSM upgrade kit now supports the Zeiss LSM 880

The new upgrade kit expands the capabilities of the laser scanning microscope Zeiss LSM 880 with time-resolved analysis methods

PicoQuant GmbH has expanded the compatibility list of its FLIM and FCS upgrade kit to include the Zeiss LSM 880 confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM). The upgrade kit is an external addition to the CLSM enhancing its capabilities by the addition of time-resolved techniques such as fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM), Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS), or advanced time-resolved Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) analysis.

PicoQuant introduces two new high-powered laser modules with variable repetition rates

The VisIR-765 “STED” and VisUV offer pulse-widths optimized for STED and fluorescence lifetime applications

PicoQuant has introduced the picosecond pulsed laser platforms VisIR-765 and VisUV at the Laser World of PHOTONICS 2015 in Munich (June 22-25, 2015). The VisIR-765 “STED” delivers an optical output power of up to 1.5 W at 766 nm with a laser pulse width of 500 ps. Short pulse width below 70 ps can be offered optionally. The VisUV laser can generate light at 266 nm, 355 nm, and 532 nm. Any wavelength can be chosen individually or in combination with one or two other lines. Average output powers between 2 mW and 500 mW can be offered, depending on the wavelength and on the amount of beam outputs chosen. Pulse widths of less than 70 ps are achieved.

New operating software for the PDL 828 “Sepia II”

Version 1.1 features a new GUI and more detailed settings

PicoQuant has released version 1.1 of the "universal laser control software", which now also allows to control the PDL 828 "Sepia II" in addition to the Solea supercontinuum laser. The software features a very clean and easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) that adapts to the actual configuration of the connected PDL 828. Different settings can now be stored inside the laser driver allowing a quick change of configurations. The new software version also increases the range of possible internal repetition rates of the oscillator module, which can now be set to nearly 200.000 distinct values between 80 MHz and 760 Hz. Another very useful new feature has been added to the control of the pulse energy of the connected lasers that can now be varied in steps of 0.1 % leading to a much finer control of excitation power.
