"I absolutely love working with this instrument, it is a dream! The capabilities are endless. I use it to process daily water samples and it has cut the analysing time in half if not by more, plus the fact you can store all the old data runs and look back on them whenever you please."

FlowCam Supports a Broad Array of Aquatic Research Goals
Combining the basic principles of microscopy, particle counting, and image recognition, FlowCam enables rapid analysis and particle characterization for applications as diverse as: microplastics research, wastewater analysis, sedimentation studies, stormwater runoff, and glacial particle analysis.
Fluorescence capabilities allow for the differentiation of stained particles or comparison of living and non-living particles in your water sample with FlowCam’s versatile platform.
Analyze benthic particles such as tephra, foraminifera, and other sediments
Expedite analysis of water samples and evaluate productivity and plankton availability for food supply
Study the effects of microplastic pollution on marine organisms
Identify organisms essential to wastewater treatment process
