Graphical representation of fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy data demonstrates that a mixture of two components with single exponential decays can be resolved by single frequency measurements. We derive a method based on linear fitting that allows the calculation of the fluorescence lifetimes of the two components. We show that introduction of proper error-weighting results in a non-linear method that is mathematically identical to a global analysis algorithm that was recently derived. The graphical approach was applied to cellular data obtained from a lifetime-based phosphorylation assay for the epidermal growth factor receptor and yielded results similar to those obtained by a global analysis algorithm.
