Center for Fluorescence Spectroscopy

banner

For the past 15 years the CFS has advanced the technology for fluorescence and its applications to the biosciences. Considerable progress has been made in the CFS and elsewhere in areas such as probe chemistry, multi-photon excitation, steady state imaging, time-resolved imaging, genetically engineered probes, and single molecule detection. The role of the CFS has typically been to develop the fundamental chemistry, instruments or analysis methods which are then applied to areas such as fluorescence sensing, genetic analysis and cellular imaging.

The staff of the CFS offers an annual week-long course on the "Principles and Applications of Time-Resolved Fluorescence". From 1992 up to 2004 the CFS course was taught exclusively in the USA. We received numerous requests to teach the course in Europe. PicoQuant GmbH is now hosting the course in Berlin.
