An overview of recent developments and applications of the Biophotonics Group at Hochschule Aalen is given. In view of in vitro diagnostics and biomedical screening, some advanced methods of laser-assisted microscopy and micromanipulation, as well as fluorescence reader technology, have been established. Present applications are concentrated on energy metabolism of the cell, membrane dynamics, membrane associated fluorescent proteins, laser-assisted optoporation, and photodynamic therapy.
