Expanding Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy microscopy

Expanding Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy Setup

dr. Christian Blum, Robert Molenaar Nanobiophysics Universiteit Twente.

BSc assignment for a Applied Physics or BMT student who has affinity to: optics, microscopy, biochemistry

For determing protein concentrations: Fluorescnce Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) is often used. In short: fluorescence intnsity of a diffraction limited volume is monitored over time. Measured Intensity and it's fluctulation give information about conentration and particle sizes due to it's brownian motion.

We currently expand our setup: with an aditional new UV laser want to study photon activated fluorescent molecules. And verify the molecule mobility after controlled heating, that altered the structure of molecules.
