FlowCam® Cyano

Automatically Differentiate Cyanobacteria from Other Algae

Cyanobacteria imaged by FlowCam CyanoBased on proven FlowCam® technology, the new FlowCam Cyano automatically identifies cyanobacteria from other algae and particles in aquatic samples. Using a patent-pending combination of excitation wavelength, phycocyanin fluorescence measurement and image recognition software, the system automates what used to be done manually using microscopy. After differentiating the cyanobacteria from the other algae in the sample, VisualSpreadsheet and Advanced Classifier software can be used to further characterize the specific types of all algae found in the sample. 

Typical FlowCam Cyano Applications:

FlowCam Cyano Offers:

  • High-sensitivity fluorescence detection (2 channels, phycocyanin and chlorophyll)
  • Ratiometric fluorescence accurately discriminates cyanobacteria from other algae
  • Further classification using over 30 image parameters collected for each cell
  • Integral bio-volume calculations
  • Equipped with our signature analysis software VisualSpreadsheet® 
  • Faster & easier than manual microscopy
