Expert course: Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS)

Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) is a highly sensitive method that detects movement and binding of fluorescence-labeled particles on the single molecule level. Furthermore, concentrations of movable fluorescent particles can be estimated. Thus, biochemical reactions can be monitored in real time solutions as well as within living cells.

This course will familiarize you with the theoretical background of FCS and train you on how to perform and evaluate measurements in solutions.

  • Theory of FCS
  • Correlation function
  • Model functions for diffusion processes
  • Data acquisition for FCS and FCCS
  • Data analysis for FCS and FCCS
  • Objective lenses for FCS and FCCS
  • Short introduction to RICS
