Imaging Particle Analysis - Algae Technology Applications

The FlowCAM® is being used in several different areas of biofuels research:

  • Yeast Viability Studies (ethanol)
  • Algae Classification and R&D (taxa level, pattern matching software)
  • Lipid Analysis via Staining and Fluorescence
  • Live/Dead Population Analyses
  • Algae Growth Concentration/Growth Rate Monitoring
  • Bioreactor Contamination Monitoring

The high rate of image acquisition and pattern recognition via the VisualSpreadsheet© software makes the FlowCAM capable of analyzing much larger sample populations in a shorter amount of time than through typical manual microscopy methods (such as a hemocytometer). Having these larger sample populations yields higher statistical significance in the data for increased confidence in accuracy and repeatability.

Fluid Imaging now offers the FlowCAM Algae Technology Scholarship Program for students studying Algae Technology! See this page.
