Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) in the lab!!

December 22, 2022 – Christmas presents arrived early for the lab! We now have the ability to resolve different fluorophores based on their fluorescence lifetimes, which allow us to simultaneously image up to 8 fluorescent proteins. Our new FLIM capabilities also allow us to assess changes in protein-protein interactions in live cells using Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET).
