FlowCam® and VisualSpreadsheet® Products

Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies produces the FlowCam, a flow imaging cytometer and particle analyzer, and its paired image analysis software, VisualSpreadsheet . The FlowCam rapidly counts and images particles in a fluid stream. VisualSpreadsheet measures, sorts, and analyzes the particle images. 

There are several FlowCam models designed for different applications. Scroll down to see the currently available models. 


VisualSpreadsheet Image Analysis Software

Visualspreadsheet algaeOur 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, image filters, and perform image classification for semi-automated particle identification.  Export data in CSV format. Visit the ViSP page for more information.



FlowCam Imaging Flow Cytometer and Particle Analyzer 

The FlowCam....

    Measures particle size and shape —  collect over 40 measurements on each particle imaged for a more comprehensive analysis
    Provides superior image quality and image-based measurements — Fast and accurate results you can see, backed by the quantitative data to prove it
    Gives statistically relevant results quickly — Capture tens of thousands of particle images per minute
    Allows automated particle characterization based on statistical pattern recognition —  Saves you time by automatically filtering different types of particles into user-created libraries
    Delivers accurate results on all particles from 300 nm to 5 mm
