MANNHEIM, Germany, Nov. 19, 2014 — A new photodetector from Leica Microsystems combines characteristics of a photomultiplier tube (PMT) with the highly sensitive avalanche photodiodes.

The Leica HyD SMD universal hybrid photodetector enables single-molecule detection (SMD), which allows precise measurement of concentration and observation of fast cellular processes.

The virtual absence of detector afterpulsing gives precise and reliable particle concentrations in fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) experiments, while short-living dyes can be used to observe fast live-cell processes.

The device has a high dynamic range and contrast, as well as rapid detection speed and low dark noise. It is integrated into the spectral detection system of the Leica TCS SP8 confocal microscopy platform.
