PicoQuant releases STED add-on for the time-resolved confocal microscope MicroTime 200

The new MicroTime 200 STED reaches super-resolution below 50 nm

PicoQuant has released a STED (stimulated emission depletion) add-on for the time-resolved confocal microscope MicroTime 200. This new super-resolution extension allows the MicroTime 200 to perform measurements that break the diffraction limit of light reaching lateral resolutions below 50 nm.

New sample chamber design for the FluoTime 300 spectrometer

Specially designed sample holders allow quick and easy change of configurations

PicoQuant has released a new design of the FluoTime 300 fluorescence lifetime spectrometer. The sample chamber of the system is now designed around modular sample holders, which allow a quick and easy change between different sample configurations, e. g. liquids, powders, or wafers. The range of available sample holders was also extended and now includes a front face sample holder for samples of up to 2 inch size. The holder permits to change position and angle of the sample with respect to the direction of excitation and detection from outside of the sample compartment. This special feature is extremely useful for an on-line optimization of the beam position on the sample while the measurement is running.

PicoQuant goes beyond the diffraction limit with STED

A new upgrade enables the time-resolved confocal microscope MicroTime 200 for STED super-resolution microscopy

PicoQuant GmbH, specialist in the field of single photon counting applications, will release a super-resolution upgrade to its confocal microscopy system MicroTime 200. The STED (stimulated emission depletion) upgrade will be presented to the public for the first time during a product demonstration at PicoQuant's 20th International Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Ultra Sensitive Analysis in the Life Sciences”. The workshop takes place on September 2-5, 2014 in Berlin, Germany.
