Founded in 1993, Becker & Hickl have introduced a proprietary time-correlated single-photon counting principle that made TCSPC more than 100 times faster than the existing devices. Moreover, bh introduced a multi-dimensional TCSPC process that records the photons not only versus the time in the signal period, but also versus other parameters, such as experiment time, wavelength, or spatial coordinates. The bh devices are designed to record multi-dimensional photon distributions, time-resolved images, sequences of photon distributions, or multi-dimensional time-tag data.

Gattaquant DNA Nanotechnologies: Technology for Super-resolution microscopy

image manager product images thumbnail dna origami based super resolution for custom nanoruler

In recent years the field of optical microscopy has developed several new technologies which have allowed to the breaking of the diffraction limit postulated by Ernst Abbé. However, due to the lack of standardized methods for measuring and quantifying the resolution obtained by such a system, the user could not be sure that the used microscope provides the resolution which is required for his experiment. Now Gattaquant have introduced tools and methodologies which address these needs, providing convenient, fast and accurate products to measure resolution for these ground-breaking new microscopy techniques.

Lastek have been appointed distributors for Gattaquant in Australia and New Zealand, to complement their portfolio of advanced microscopy capabilities from Abberior Instruments and other leading suppliers. Click here for more details on Gatta-beadsGatta-SIM nanorulers, and Gatta-STED nanorulers.
