Stellaris 8 Falcon (FAst Lifetime CONtrast) is the future of functional imaging. Harness the power of fluorescence lifetime to investigate cellular physiology and explore dynamics in living cells.

Stellaris 8 Falcon is a fully integrated solution for Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) and enables video-rate lifetime imaging acquisition for rapid kinetic studies in live cells.

Stellaris 8 Falcon adds a new dimension of contrast to your imaging, opening the door to biosensing and tracking of interactions between proteins. FLIM information is now available for all modalities of the Stellaris 8 system.

Now you can:

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