Olympus Life Science Europa GmbH has announced that PicoQuant GmbH’s module for fluorescence lifetime imaging and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy can be fitted to Olympus’ FluoView FV1000 confocal laser scanning and FV1000MPE multiphoton microscopes. The module is based on time-correlated single-photon counting using time-tagged time-resolved data handling. It provides pico- or femtosecond pulses at repetition rates from 375 to 900 nm, with controllable power and pulse frequency, and temporal resolution of 4 ps. Use of the two technologies used to measure changes in fluorescence that occur in cells over time increases the versatility of the microscope.
