The FlowCam, a water analysis instrument, is a high throughput, semi-automated alternative to manual microscopy. It provides a cost-effective and fast solution to monitor source water, reservoirs, and water treatment processes for drinking water, wastewater, and recreational activities.
Reduce labor hours, save money on testing, and eliminate complaints when you use the FlowCam to detect nuisance algae or predict harmful algae blooms and taste & odor events. The FlowCam is a streamlined solution for water quality analysis.
Use the FlowCam to:
The FlowCam captures high-resolution, digital images of particles suspended in a liquid medium. Over 40 physical parameters are measured from each image, and the data is processed using our image-recognition statistical analysis software, VisualSpreadsheet®. Use digital images to verify the size, shape, and identity of your organisms and particles.
"It used to take us 3 to 4 hours to do algae counts in the summer. Now it takes 15 minutes. We use the FlowCam because it’s quick and easy.”
