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.

A new brochure for the FLIM and FCS Upgrade Kit

Get a detailed overview of PicoQuant’s compact and turn-key FLIM and FCS upgrade kits for laser scanning microscopes

PicoQuant has released a new brochure detailing its line-up of upgrade kits that allow expanding the capabilities of Laser Scanning Microscopes (LSMs) towards time-resolved applications such as FLIM, PLIM, FRET, FCS, and anisotropy, opening up a whole new dimension of information. Each kit encompasses all of the innovative hardware and software required to grant access to a wide range of exciting applications such as quantification of FRET experiments, studying environmental parameters via FLIM, and measuring concentrations or molecular mobility for various kinds of samples using FCS.

The brochure includes an informative introduction into time-resolved microscopy methods, detailed description of each kit component, as well as application examples highlighting the experimental opportunities that such an upgraded microscope can provide. It is time to bring your LSM into a new dimension!
