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.

PicoQuant releases new version of the EasyTau software

The system software now supports remote control options, especially for controlling a liquid handling automation workstation

PicoQuant has released a new version of the system software EasyTau for the fluorescence lifetime spectrometer FluoTime 300. A major focus of this release lies on the integration of interfaces allowing remote execution of scripts written in the EasyTau scripting language to control third-party accessories such as, e.g., the liquid handling automation workstation Biomek NXP from Beckman-Coulter.

PicoQuant Combines Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Microscopy

Novel fiber coupling sample holder opens new opportunities for investigating spatial dependence of luminescence behavior

PicoQuant has released a new fiber coupling sample holder for the modular time-resolved spectrometer FluoTime 300. This holder makes it possible to interface the system with a microscope such as the MicroTime 100. This set-up easily allows users to record time- and space-resolved emission spectra from any sample mounted in the microscope.

rapidFLIM – redefining the standards for dynamic FLIM imaging

PicoQuant releases application note describing a novel fluorescence lifetime imaging method with fast image acquisition

A recent publication by PicoQuant lays out the basics of rapidFLIM, a novel, dynamic Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) method, along with practical applications. The rapidFLIM approach allows image acquisition with several frames per second and thus opens the way for the study of dynamic processes in living cells or other materials through fast fluorescence lifetime imaging. It is ideally suited for observing fast processes, like protein interaction or chemical interactions, following highly mobile species including live cells, moving organelles, or nanoparticles, as well as investigate Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) dynamics. Depending on sample brightness and image size, rapidFLIM allows acquiring more than 10 to 15 frames per second.
