The FlowCam instrument combines the functionality of an imaging flow cytometer and a microscope in a single, powerful research tool: fluorescence analysis, digital images, physical measurements, biovolume calculations, robust statistical analysis, and semi-automated classification of organisms. The FlowCam was developed at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in 1997 by Dr. Chris Sieracki, the current Chairman and primary inventor of Fluid Imaging Technologies, as a faster, more informative method of phytoplankton enumeration and analysis than the existing technologies at the time. Since its development, the FlowCam has found numerous applications in aquatic research and industry.
