The FlowCam has been adopted by hundreds of pharmaceutical corporations worldwide for particle analysis to improve the development, quality, and safety of their formulations.
Use real digital images to verify the size, shape, and identity of your particles. Differentiate between air bubbles, silicone oil droplets, protein aggregates, and contaminants, and determine which particles are inherent, intrinsic, and extrinsic.
The FlowCam captures high-resolution, digital images of particles suspended in a fluid. Over 40 physical parameters are measured from each image, while the data is processed using our image-recognition statistical analysis software VisualSpreadsheet.
Flow imaging microscopy serves as an orthogonal method to most common particle analysis methods including light obscuration and the Coulter principle to fully characterize your subvisible particles.
“The FlowCam paid for itself in just one incident. Suddenly our [parenteral drug] began to show visible particles. So, we FlowCammed a sample from each step of the manufacturing process and saw that one of our filling pumps was shedding metal shards, catalyzing aggregation. We were able to fix the pump and continue with manufacturing. In just that one instance, the FlowCam saved us time, money, and enabled manufacturing to continue that same day.”
