FlowCam® 8000 Series

FlowCam Left Angle Props - croppedThe FlowCam 8000 series combines the benefits of digital imaging, flow cytometry, and microscopy into a single instrument. Count and analyze tens of thousands of particles per minute and see your subvisible particles with superior image quality.

Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies manufactures industry-leading particle analysis instrumentation based on digital imaging technology. Our flagship product, the FlowCam, is the first automated particle analysis instrument to use digital imaging for measuring size and shape (including 40+ morphological characteristics) of microscopic particles in a fluid medium. With applications in oceanographic research, municipal water, biopharmaceutical formulations, chemicals, oil and gas, biofuels, and many other markets, the FlowCam continues to lead the way in imaging particle analysis.

Compare FlowCam to MFI
