Uncovering LINCam

A comprehensive comparison study of wide-field and confocal approaches for single molecule localization microscopy has been published recently. The authors exploit lifetime as a marker to differentiate several chromophores. Surprisingly, LINCam even with a lower quantum efficiency outperforms the confocal method in number of acquired photons per molecule in addition to outstanding signal-to-noise ratio and excellent lifetime accuracy.


MIET (Metal induced energy transfer)

Metal induced energy transfer (MIET) is a nanoscopy technique to measure distances from fluorescent molecules to a metal film. Here we present MIET acquisition using wide-field and TIRF fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) equipped with LINCam.

FLIM (Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging)

Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) is a technique which uses the separation of different fluorescence decay times of fluorohpores to create an image contrast other than intensity in classical imaging.

About Photonscore

In more than 10 years the of work, the LINCam was developed at the imaging core facility of the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg. In 2017, the original Developers Dr.-Ing. Werner Zuschratter, Dr.-Ing. Yury Prokazov and Evgeny Turbin founded the spin-off company Photonscore to further develop this novel quantum light sensor and make it commercial available to various labs, institutes and companies.
