Prevent culture crash with high throughput monitoring of algae in real-time. The FlowCam automates the analysis of large volumes of data for microalgae research and industrial cultivation, providing 40+ morphological parameters 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.
“Data, especially on algal cell shape and size, and on culture quality, that were too labor-intensive to collect are now routinely acquired and shared. We have found that the data obtained by a single person using FlowCam would have
previously required 3 people."
—Charley O'Kelly, Director of Applied Research, Cyanotech Corporation
For particles 2 µm to 1 mm. Compatible with Automated Liquid Handler.
Applications: Track cell size distributions, monitor contamination, cell vitality analysis, lipid analysis
Streamlined for rapid data acquisition and analysis, the FlowCam 5000 analyzes freshwater and marine samples, calculates cell counts, concentration and biovolume, and provides semi-automated classification of taxa; all at an affordable price that now puts the FlowCam technology within reach of smaller non-profits, facilities and government institutions.
Applications: QA/QC, batch testing

Our proprietary software VisualSpreadsheet performs image recognition, particle measurements, statistical analyses, data collection, and enables data manipulation. With VisualSpreadsheet (ViSP), which is included with every FlowCam, you can create image libraries, digital filters, and use machine learning for auto-classification. View data in ViSP or export to Excel in CSV format. Visit the ViSP page for more information.
