2022 proved to be an exceptional year of innovation and growth. New products, new partners, and new expertise capture the spirit of how our company continues to offer best-in-class subvisible particle imaging instruments year after year.
With the launch of FlowCam Nano, flow imaging analysis of submicron particles in the 300 nm to 2 μm size range is now a reality – extending the capabilities beyond what is possible with traditional light microscopy. Robotic sample handling with ALH for FlowCam makes sample preparation consistent, providing improved data reproducibility via automation and freeing up time and resources for FlowCam 8000 series users.
Image-based particle analysis is now faster and more robust with the new VisualSpreadsheet 6 software. With Visual AI, you can differentiate and quantify protein aggregates, silicone droplets, and other contaminants without generating large image training sets.
We enjoyed connecting with our customers and meeting new partners at the GlobalHAB workshop in Sweden, the Joint Aquatic Sciences meeting in Michigan, and the Colorado Protein Stability Conference in Breckenridge, Colorado. Advanced particle characterization with FlowCam is helping improve drinking water quality, monitor HABs in marine systems and track submicron particle properties in biopharmaceutical formulations. We are happy to support the many ways FlowCam technology is proving to be essential in addressing particle-based problems worldwide.
We welcomed Yokogawa teams and FlowCam sales partners from Japan, South Korea, South Africa, Ireland, Brazil, Singapore, Bahrain, and Taiwan, to our Maine headquarters for our first in-person training summit since the pandemic. In one short week, all participants gained hands-on experience with FlowCam instruments and used VisualSpreadsheet 6 software to analyze particle samples relevant to their key application areas. Stay tuned for future customer training events designed to help you learn more about FlowCam technology.
FlowCam Customer Service team members visited customer sites around the globe to provide first-time installations and helpful follow-up training sessions on instrumentation and software features. Get to know your Customer Service representative and schedule a remote or in-person training or gain access to FlowCam University for on-demand training. Learn more about product service plans to ensure your FlowCam is operating optimally and properly maintained.
Our Analytical Lab team grew this year with the addition of two new members. Austin Coco (pictured, far left) and Louise Brogan (far right) joined Austin Daniels (second from left) and Nicole Stephens (third from left) to round out our broad range of experience and expertise. Our analytical lab is your one-stop resource for technology assessment, method development, and customized application testing.
We offer in-house instrument demos and new sample analysis to help you achieve your particle characterization goals across a broad array of applications ranging from biopharmaceutical and aquatic sciences to smart materials to food and beverage quality control.
Our scientists and marketing team produced timely product information and educational content, including the following white papers, summaries, and technical notes to keep you up to date on the latest FlowCam developments and relevant uses.
|Top FlowCam Studies for Biopharma||Top Aquatic FlowCam Research Studies|
|VisualAI White Paper||Fiber Analysis Technical Note|
