Zeiss and Picoquant shake hands for new Software Integration


ZEISS has recently developed and released a Handshake plug-in for their ZEISS ZEN imaging software. This plug-in enables acquiring time-resolved data with PicoQuant’s LSM Upgrade Kit within the familiar ZEISS ZEN environment.

This integration provides you with a further way to optimize your Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) or Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) measurement workflow. The subsequent data analysis is performed employing the powerful and versatile tools provided by PicoQuant’s SymPhoTime 64 software package.

The ZEISS ZEN software integration allows setting up and controlling basic confocal, FLIM, FCS and FLCS measurements as well as more complex acquisition schemes such as multi-point FCS, time-series FLIM, or even 3D-FLIM images. All of these advanced acquisition modes can also be combined into a single experiment.

PicoQuant is a leading research and development company specializing in optoelectronics, which was founded in 1996. The company, based in the science and technology park of Berlin-Adlershof, Germany, is a worldwide leader in the field of single photon counting applications.
