The Toggel from Lambert Instruments is a Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM) camera for researchers and imaging centers that combines excellent light sensitivity with easy image acquisition and data analysis. It has an unique CCD image sensor that contains all the functionality required for fluorescence lifetime imaging and removing the need for an image intensifier. The camera provides an unprecedented frame rate of 30 fps with the single-image fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (siFLIM) method. It is ideal for live-cell imaging, bacteria research and high-throughput screening applications.
Other imaging modes of the camera include regular frequency-domain FLIM acquisition and time-lapse recordings. Data analysis is done automatically by the Lambert Instruments software, which instantly calculates the fluorescence lifetime and presents it to the user as a colorized overlay on the original image.
