For excitable cells in which signaling events occur in milliseconds, a mathematical formalism for pixel-wise fitting generates virtually pixel noise-free image sequences from high-speed 2-dimensional confocal data. This approach provides novel insight into cardiac excitation-contraction coupling and its pathophysiology. Such an analytical approach can be extended into other biological systems to uncover otherwise inaccessible features of subcellular signal transduction in living cells.

The Cobolt Zouk is a continuous-wave (CW) single-frequency DPSS laser operating at 355 nm in a perfect quality TEM00 beam (M2<1.1) and with 10 or 20 mW output power.
A proprietary laser cavity design provides ultra-low noise performance of typically <0.2% rms (over 20 Hz-20MHz and over 10-40ºC), a narrow spectral linewidth of <1MHz and immunity to optical feedback.

The SymPhoTime 64 Software Package from PicoQuant is an integrated solution for fluorescence lifetime imaging and correlation microscopy that facilitates data acquisition as well as data analysis. A clearly structured layout and a wide range of customizable analysis procedures allow the user to focus on the results rather than on data processing. The SymPhoTime 64 is designed for a 64 bit operation system.
