Flow cytometry is a well established biophysical technology for cell counting and cell sorting, esp. for blood cells in routine and research. To adjust the system set-up to the samples, different laser combinations will be necessary.
For optimizing the S/N ratios, it will be always recommended to check the optical components: Specific bandpass filters and precisely selected dichroics ("longpass filters") should be precisely matched to the combination of lasers and the specific dyes.

WITec has launched StrobeLock, a time-correlated single photon counting measurement option. The imaging modes include Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging and Time-resolved Luminescence Microscopy, which can be integrated with the alpha300 and alpha500 microscope series. moreMar. 07, 2013
PicoQuant has released a new Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) and Multichannel Scaling (MCS) board with PCI Express (PCIe) interface. It is based on a custom Time-to-Digital-Converter (TDC) design that offers an ultrashort dead time and very high throughput even at high temporal resolutions. The TimeHarp 260 is available with either 25 ps or 1 ns base resolution. A time-tagged mode allows the most sophisticated offline analysis of photon dynamics. moreFeb. 26, 2013
