15th European Short Course on Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy

The course held by PicoQuant and the CFS offers an in-depth introduction with lectures and practical sessions

The annual short course “Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy” is organized by PicoQuant GmbH in cooperation with Joseph R. Lakowicz from the Center of Fluorescence Spectroscopy (CFS) in Baltimore, USA. The course gives an in-depth introduction into the principles of fluorescence spectroscopy as well as its applications to life science. This years course will be held from November 6 to 9, 2017 in the capital city of Germany, Berlin.

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!
