Researchers are evaluating algae as a renewable source of biofuel, nutritional supplements, fish feed, and fertilizers. Continuous monitoring is critical for quickly identifying contaminants, quantifying lipid content, calculating size distribution and understanding the overall health of the culture. The FlowCam automates the analysis of large volumes of algae data in real-time.
The FlowCam automates microalgae sample analysis, providing 40+ morphological data points including biovolume, size distribution, shape and fluorescence to aid in population health analysis and harvest scheduling. Contamination identification and enumeration is streamlined through the creation of libraries that classify invasive species and foreign particles.
