Press Release Summary:
FlowCamÂ® ALH automated liquid handling system complements FlowCam 8000 Series particle imaging and analysis system, whichÂ automatically detects, images, and characterizes thousands of individual particles and microorganisms in real-time. Able to automatically process up to 96 samples per run without human involvement/supervision,Â FlowCam ALH enables consistent, uninterrupted operation. Self-contained system only requires operator to program and save pre-analysis sample preparation methods.
Original Press Release:
New FlowCam® Automated Liquid Handling System Speeds Sample Processing and Strengthens Data Quality in Imaging Particle Analysis
FlowCam Particle Analysis System with Unattended Operation Eliminates Human Errors
Scarborough, ME: Global laboratory instrumentation manufacturer Fluid Imaging Technologies, Scarborough, Maine (www.FluidImaging.com) has unveiled the FlowCam® ALH automated liquid handling system. A companion for the company's FlowCam 8000 Series particle imaging and analysis system that automatically detects, images and characterizes thousands of individual particles and microorganisms in seconds in real time, the automated liquid handling system automatically processes up to 96 samples per run without requiring human involvement or supervision for consistent, uninterrupted operation. Once pre-analysis sample preparation methods are programmed and saved using an intuitively easy interface, the FlowCam ALH runs entirely unattended to reduce labor, eliminate the potential for human error in sample handling and pipetting and assure the resulting data is highly accurate and actionable.
Ideal for particle characterization and quality control in protein therapeutics, drug development and production, and in a variety of other liquid and dry particle analysis applications, the FlowCam autosampler includes built-in mixing, heating and cooling for sample conditioning, control over evaporation and protection against sample degradation. The FlowCam ALH liquid handling system is entirely self-contained on a compact footprint in a protective enclosure suitable for cleanrooms to prevent contamination and prevent outside activities from disturbing the operation. The FlowCam autosampler is already proven effective for protein analysis in multiple customer laboratories on three continents.
