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!

The FLIMbee: fast scanning add-on for PicoQuant’s MicroTime 200 platform

The new galvo scanner add-on FLIMbee provides outstanding flexibility in scanning speed

The FLIMbee galvo scanner add-on has been released for the MicroTime 200 time-resolved microscopy platform by PicoQuant. This new scanner provides an outstanding flexibility in scanning speed, ranging from very slow to fast, while maintaining the excellent spatial precision of the MicroTime 200. The FLIMbee is designed to minimize vignetting of the image field and to ensure a constant focal volume over a wide scan range.

PicoQuant expands its hybrid photomultiplier detector line-up

Two new models from the PMA Hybrid Series are now available, covering broad spectral ranges with excellent detection efficiency

PicoQuant has released two new single photon sensitive hybrid photo detector models with excellent temporal resolution for its PMA Hybrid Series: The PMA Hybrid 42 covers the entire visible range from 300 nm to 850 nm with a detection efficiency of up to 20 %. The PMA Hybrid 07 is sensitive in the UV down to 220 nm with a maximum detection efficiency of up to 25 % and covers the whole visible spectrum.

PicoQuant releases 560 nm laser for applications in Life Science

The new picosecond pulsed laser emits light in the yellow-green spectral range ideal for the excitation of many molecular probes

PicoQuant has released a laser head that emits laser pulses at 560 nm. The fiber amplified laser head LDH-P-FA-560 delivers average optical powers of more than 3 mW at a repetition rate of 40 MHhz with pulse widths down to 40 ps. The new laser nicely rounds out PicoQuant’s range of picosecond pulsed laser sources in the yellow-green spectral range. The LDH-P-FA-560 is fully compatible with all laser drivers from PicoQuant’s PDL Series. The collimated free beam output can optionally be coupled into an optical fiber.
