Inverse Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (iFCS) is a variant of FCS where unlabeled particles in solution, or domains in membranes, displace their surrounding, signal-generating molecules and thereby generate fluctuations. iFCS has to date been applied to unlabeled as well as labeled particles and protein molecules, using fluorescence as well as Raman scattering as a signal source, in diffraction-limited detection volumes as well as in nano-wells, and on fixed surfaces as well as in lipid bilayers. This review describes these applications and discusses the potentials and pitfalls when using iFCS.
