Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies

FlowCam, is the first automated particle analysis instrument to use digital imaging for measuring size and shape of microscopic particles in a fluid medium. The FlowCam is in use by the U.S. EPA, FDA, Pfizer, Amgen, Heinz, Nestle, Apache, among hundreds of other organizations in over 40 countries and on every continent for biopharmaceutical formulations, chemicals, oil and gas, biofuels and many other markets

Particle Analysis for Biopharmaceuticals

  •  The FlowCam captureshigh-resolution, digital images of particles suspended in a fluid.
  • Real digital imagesto verify the size, shape, and identity of your particles. Differentiatebetween air bubbles, silicone oil droplets, protein   aggregates, and contaminants, and determine which particles areinherent, intrinsic, and extrinsic.
  • Image and analyze particles 300 nm to10+ µm
  • Allows automatedparticle characterization based on statistical patternrecognition —  Saves you time by automatically filteringdifferent types of particles into user-created libraries
  • Measures particlesize and shape —  collect over 40 measurements on each particleimaged for a more comprehensive analysis
Flow imaging microscopy serves as an orthogonal method to most common particle analysis methods including light obscuration and the Coulter principle to fully characterize your subvisible particles.
