The bh Express-FLIM System records real-time video streams of FLIM data or other fast FLIM sequences with DCS-120-based confocal and multiphoton FLIM systems and DCS MACRO systems. The system uses fast confocal or multiphoton scanning in combination with time-resolved photon counting and online calculation of the fluorescence lifetime directly in the data acquisition hardware. The required data processing procedures are implemented in the SPC-QC-104 and in the SPC-180 TCSPC FLIM modules. FLIM systems based on these modules can be run either in the Express-FLIM mode or in the normal high-resolution-FLIM mode just by loading different data acquisition software.
