Mannheim, Germany. Leica Microsystems introduces the Leica HyD SMD universal hybrid photodetector with superior characteristics for single molecule detection (SMD), which allows precise measurement of concentration and observation of fast cellular processes. It was presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) 2014 in Washington, D.C., and will also be shown at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), in Philadelphia, PA, USA from December 6 to 10.
“The Leica HyD SMD is a class of its own. Virtually no detector afterpulsing and a fast instrument response time give precise and reliable data for
