FlowCam® Cyano

Based on proven FlowCam® technology, 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 was previously done using manual microscopy. After differentiating the cyanobacteria from the other algae in the sample, VisualSpreadsheet® software can be used to further characterize specific types of algae found in the sample using 40+ physical parameters.

Typical FlowCam Cyano Applications:

  • Detection & verification of cyanobacteria presence
  • Biovolume calculation
  • Cell density calculation (including for colonial and filamentous cyanobacteria)
  • Proactive treatment operations
