FlowCam 8000 Series Imaging Particle Analysis System

 

The FlowCam® is the first automated particle analysis instrument to use digital imaging for measuring size and shape of microscopic particles in a fluid medium. With industry-leading image quality combined with automated statistical pattern recognition software, the FlowCam imaging particle analysis system is an important tool for detecting, identifying, and quantifying microscopic particles in a variety of applications.

Most particle analysers give you a distribution of particle size only. FlowCam® is the imaging-based particle analyser that gives you over 30 different measurements for each particle, as quickly as the other systems give you only one size measurement, based on an assumption that all particles are spherical in shape.
