Fluorescence lifetime-based technology has experienced a rapid growth during the last decade, becoming a unique tool for performing real-time, non-invasive  analysis in a large variety of scientific fields, from life-sciences to medical surgery and agrifood.

With the aim of democratizing the whole category of fluorescence lifetime calculation devices we have developed a fluorescence lifetime analysis starter-kit made up of a desktop-sized fiber-coupled picosecond-pulsed laser module and USB-powered fiber-coupled single-photon-avalanche-diode (SPAD) detector as well as a multi-channel USB-powered FLIM data acquisition and timetagger card (DAQ) that fits in the palm of a hand. 
We are also commercializing a constant fraction discriminator module (CFD) that can be used for interfacing our products with pre-existing setups and instruments such as PMTs and 2PE lasers.
