DataPhysics Instruments, Filderstadt, Germany
Raiffeisenstraße 34, D-70794 Filderstadt, Germany

DataPhysics Instruments GmbH was founded in 1997 in Filderstadt, Southern Germany. As a medium-sized, international company we are developing, manufacturing and distributing innovative contact angle measuring devices, tensiometers humidity generators and instruments for characterising disperse material systems.
In many diverse engineering applications the ability of liquids to wet solids affects the quality of the finished products and the integrity/reproducibility of the manufacturing processes. Some important examples of this are the production and application of paints and varnishes, the development and the optimisation of composite materials, the use of adhesives and selection of solvents for engineering materials, and the biocompatibility of medical implants. Reliable analytical data is provided via the precise evaluation of static and dynamic contact angles, the surface free energy of solids and the surface and interfacial tension of liquids. Last but not least, the recent, rapid, advancements in nanotechnology and biotechnology have been possible, only, through an exact knowledge of wetting processes in the sub-microscopic level.
All over the world we are recognized as a responsive, empathetic and reliable partner for customers in a wide range of application fields of research, development and industry, always following the goal of being at the forefront of this fast developing science.
In order to create and improve solutions for surface and interfacial characterisation we work tirelessly and continuously in cooperation with many famous institutes. Due to our wide accessory range we are able to satisfy specific customer requirements and give each device an individual design.

PicoQuant, Berlin, Germany
Rudower Chaussee 29, D-12489 Berlin, Germany

The PicoQuant group was founded in 1996 to develop robust, compact, and easy to use time-resolved instrumentation and systems. Since April 2008 sales and support in North America is handled by PicoQuant Photonics North America Inc. In January 2010, the PicoQuant group was extended by PicoQuant Innovations, which was founded to support the increasing activities in the field of teaching, customer support and event organization.

Today, PicoQuant is known as a company leading in the field of pulsed diode lasers, time-resolved data acquisition, single photon counting, and fluorescence instrumentation. In 2002, already more than 10 years ago, we developed the first commercial ultrasensitive fluorescence microscope that permits measurements on the single molecule level. Our instruments are used all over the world. They help to prepare papers in high-ranking journals as well as carrying out routine quality control and production processes of global industrial players. Starting from traditional time-resolved fluorescence detection in bioanalytics, the range of applications is continuously increasing and includes semiconductor quality control, diffuse optical tomography, quantum information processing, optical detector testing, and telecommunications. Due to our easy to use products, researchers can now focus on their problems in biology, medicine, environmental science, or chemistry without needing a large background in physics, electronics, or optics.
Our intention is to offer state-of-the-art technology which has been co-developed and tested by renowned researchers at a price affordable to scientific groups and cost sensitive industry. We have successfully teamed up with all major confocal microscopy companies to develop dedicated equipment that permits time-resolved fluorescence studies on their commercial laser scanning microscopes. Following this philosophy, we are always looking for new challenges. PicoQuant especially encourages OEM inquiries for its products, notably for applications where time-resolved techniques were considered too expensive and cumbersome in the past.
PicoQuant’s innovative and dynamic team of physicists, chemists, biologists, designers, electronic, software, and mechanical engineers work together to offer a full range of modules for optical excitation, photon counting, as well as complete and automatic instrumentation for a wide range of electrooptical measurement tasks.
