The New Leica FALCON – Fast Lifetime Contrast for Imaging of Brain Structure and Function

Fluorescence lifetime imaging is a popular technique for label-free imaging of metabolic processes and biosensors. The new Fast Lifetime Contrast (FALCON) by Leica Microsystems is offering fully integrated, high-speed lifetime measurements. In combination with the new Deep In Vivo Explorer (DIVE) spectral multiphoton system it is a perfect match to study cerebral NADH and many other metabolites, eliminating previous limitations of speed, depth, and ease of use.

Jens Peter Gabriel is Application Specialist for life science research microscopy at Leica Microsystems since 2012. He obtained his PhD in Biology from the University of Cologne in 2006. Before joining Leica, Jens was working as a postdoc in the field of Neuroscience at the Max-Planck-Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg/Germany and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm/Sweden. His research interest were neuronal networks generating behavior, which he studied in zebrafish combining methods like electrophysiology, multi-photon calcium imaging, and confocal microscopy. In his current role at Leica Microsystems, Jens is using his scientific and technological background to give presentations, demonstrations, and technical advice about microscopy systems and applications
