Fluorescence lifetime image scanning microscopy (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Image Scanning Microscopy (ISM) enhances the spatial resolution of a confocal microscope by simple means. An extension to realize fluorescence lifetime imaging in combination with ISM seems straight-forward. First realizations have been reported by Israel et al. and Castello et al. [1,2] Here, we present a cost-efficient detector scheme based on a commercial multi-anode PMT that allows to perform fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) in combination with ISM. We developa dedicated amplification electronics that allows for counting signals from 32 detector pixels using a commercial eight channel TCSPC hardware. [1] Y. Israel, R. Tenne, D. Oron, and Y.
