We use Becker and Hickl FLIM cards on two-photon microscopy systems for numerous applications in cancer research, immunology, and regenerative medicine. These measurements provide valuable insight into dynamic changes in living systems.

We worked directly with Becker and Hickl to select a HPM-100-50 cooled detector for NIR FLIM microscopy which allowed us to increase the sensitivity of detection of our assay significantly to measure FRET in cells, 3D tumor models and frozen tumor sections.

Our multi-module Becker & Hickl FLIM / PLIM with hybrid detectors on a confocal macroscanner provides high quality metabolic and oxygenation data on a macroscale. For us, macro-FLIM/PLIM turned into a valuable tool for cutting edge cancer research on spheroids, living mice and patients’ tumor samples.
Marina Shirmanova
Privolzhsky Research Medical University
We have two TCSPC boards and two hybrid detectors from Becker & Hickl, and they are reliable, easy to use and give excellent results for all the fluorescence lifetime measurements we do. You can synchronise the boards, too, and use them for time-resolved fluorescence anisotropy measurements. Nice!
Klaus Suhling
King’s College London
We approached Becker & Hickl with an exhaustive list of requirements for a bespoke, multimodal FLIM platform. They really rose to the challenge and delivered an exceptionally performing system. We’re so excited about the new science it will allow our research community to produce.
