Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) is a powerful technique that could provide high temporal resolution and detection for the diffusions of biomolecules at extremely low concentrations. The accuracy of this approach primarily depends on experimental condition requirements and the data analysis model. In this study, we have set up a confocal-based FCS system. And then we used a Rhodamine6G solution to calibrate the system and get the related parameters. An experimental measurement was carried out on one-component solution to evaluate the relationship between a certain number of molecules and concentrations. The results showed FCS system we built was stable and valid. Finally, a two-component solution experiment was carried out to show the importance of analysis model selection. It is a promising method for single molecular diffusion study in living cells.
