FlowCam Particle Analysis Simplifies Quality Control of Food & Beverage Products
Ingredients are critical in all facets of the food and beverage industry. Flow imaging microscopy allows you to isolate different particle types from a heterogeneous mixture in order to ensure quality and detect process flaws.
An efficient, high-throughput analysis tool, FlowCam can detect variations in particle size, morphology, and texture allowing for streamlined quality control.
Use FlowCam to:
Ensure uniformity within homogeneous mixtures while also checking for undesirable agglomerations and foreign contaminants
Distinguish between and quantify distinct particle types from heterogeneous mixtures to better understand ingredient composition
Compare properties between different raw material lots to detect process flaws and reduce product variability
“Most people just don’t know enough about how particle morphology affects product performance or flow characteristics…Seeing digital images of individual particles with FlowCam provided the documentation I needed to prove [that particle shape variation from batch to batch was causing variability in particle behavior]”
