LEICA SP8 FALCON: See Beyond Spectral

The new Leica SP8 FALCON (FAst Lifetime CONtrast) is the first truly integrated solution for Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) and delivers benchmark results at least 10x faster thanconventional systems.

SP8 FALCON allows you to see beyond spectral by adding a new dimension of contrast to your imaging. FALCON provides access to biosensing and tracking of interactions between proteins. FLIMinformation is now available for all modalities of the SP8 platform including DIVE MP systems and STED.

With one integrated system you can:

Follow fast molecular interactions via FLIM-FRET (Förster Resonance Energy Transfer)
Use biosensors to detect changes in metabolic state and microenvironment
Apply lifetime contrast to separate multiple fluorophores
Acquire fluorescence lifetime data with minimal training
