Fluorescence experiments for chemists, biochemists, biologists, physicists and general scientists.
Let your students work their way through carefully designed experiments using a fluorescence lifetime spectrometer simulator to ultimately derive physical parameters for various molecular systems.
Access to a real fluorescence lifetime spectrometer is generally out of reach of most undergraduate teaching laboratories due to the cost of this sophisticated piece of equipment. However, with our simulator, students can operate the instrument and vary different parameters such as wavelength, delay and slit widths to optimise collection of their fluorescence decay data.
Simply download our windows software and try our evaluation copies.
The Fluorescence Lifetime Spectrometer Simulator:
Select the excitation, emission wavelengths and appropriate time range to display the fluorescence decay curve. Choose your megahertz repetition rate nano-LED excitation source, open the shutters and then watch the data collect on the screen! You can display in log or linear form- it’s just like using the real thing!
Once your decay has collected, run an instrument profile and then analyse your data to derive a fluorescence lifetime using our analysis software.
We have two fluorescence experiments available: one concerning the temperature (Arrhenius) behaviour of a luminescent sample and the second involving Stern-Volmer quenching. More information can be found here.
What to do next?
Simply download the fully functional “demonstration version” of our software for evaluation purposes. If you wish to proceed to purchase a full licence for teaching purposes contact our sales department to arrange payment following which you will also receive additional documentation and other support material.
Our simulators do not require the latest or the greatest computers. If you have a new PC then great but if you need to use an obsolete PC running Windows-98 SE or later then, provided it can read a CD you can probably use it.
