AUREA Technology offers the "best in class" single photon counting modules


AUREA Technolog received the 2015 CLEO Laser Focus World Innovation Award.

The PICOXEA from AUREA Technology is the first "all in one, very-compact, and easy-to-use" Time Correlated Single Photon Counting TCSPC ANALYSER, which contains pulsed laser, gated-mode Single Photon Counting and its associated TDC correlation electronics and software for standard fluorescence decay recording.

Engineered with innovative mindset, the stand-alone PICOXEA TCSPC ANALYSER fully integrates within the same box; the world’s most advanced Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (Geiger-SPAD), picosecond pulsed laser source and Time to Digital Converter (TDC) technologies. Moreover, it includes the fast data processing, USB interface, and also the most intuitive Graphical User Interfaces compatible with LabVIEW and also the most commonly used programming languages.

This newly designed PICOXEA TCSPC ANALYSER allows any very-low-level of light down to the single photon level required for fast event fluorescence (FLIM, FCS...), photoluminescence or Photon Source Time-Resolved measurements.

Optical fiber coupled, the PICOXEA TCSPC ANALYSER is compatible with any commercial confocal microscopes, two-photon excitation microscopes and multiphoton tomography systems.
