The FlowCam Nano is the first and only instrument available on the market to image nanoparticles in a fluid stream, offering a high-throughput solution to nanoparticle characterization.
In its first year on the market, our Nano-Flow Imaging™ technology received three awards for innovation:
|Pittcon Silver Excellence Award 2018|
|Pharma Innovation Award, Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Magazine 2018|
|Manufacturers Association of Maine Innovator of the Year 2018|
"The FlowCam Nano has given us a lot of insight to smaller sized particles. Everything now in industry is 10 µm or above. You miss out on a lot of phenomena that can occur if you eliminate any particles. Because there's not a push to look at them, not many people are looking at [particles smaller than 10 µm]...If we have the tools and technology, can they give us insight? For our research it's been really helpful. It's shown us how particles and proteins may interact, especially for my project in particular — a pumping study."
— Cheng Her, PhD, Post Doctoral Fellow at University of Colorado Denver with John Carpenter, PhD.

For characterization of particles 300 nm and larger. The first flow imaging microscope to extend the limits of imaging below 1 µm using patented oil-immersion technology.
Applications: formulation development, protein stability studies, manufacturing process improvement, final product QA/QC, blood cells
Our proprietary software VisualSpreadsheet performs image recognition, particle measurements, statistical analyses, data collection, and enables data manipulation. With VisualSpreadsheet (ViSP), included with every FlowCam, you can create image libraries, digital filters, and use machine learning for auto-classification.
