available in Widefield, Spinning-disk confocal, and TIRF configurations
the most cost-effective way of doing quantitative FLIM
LIFA is compatible with every fluorescence microscope with a camera output
The Lambert Instruments LIFA system is the fastest and easiest way to do Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM).
Available in versatile configurations dependent on your specific applications, the LIFA system offers a turn-key solution for fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy. Compatible with every fluorescence microscope with a camera output – including microscopes by Leica, Nikon, Olympus, TILL and Zeiss; set up is easy and fast, with all hardware integrating seamlessly with our LIFA software, so you can focus on your experiment.
The advanced software instantly analyses your data and presents the calculated fluorescence lifetimes visually. Recorded images are compatible with ImageJ, FIJI, Matlab and MetaMorph, while detailed statisitcal data can be exported to Excel worksheets.
