Press Release Summary:
FlowCAMÂ® particle imaging and analysis system integrates syringe pump and flow control software to provide automated process that enables operator to load sample, press start, and leave sample running unatteneded. Achieving sample volume efficiencies up to 90%, it offers real-time detection, imaging, counting, and measurement of particles and microorganisms. Date/time stamps are automatically assigned to images and measurements, and audit trail is created for future review and analysis.
Original Press Release:
New Particle Imaging Instrumentation Boosts Sample Volume Efficiency to 90% for Precise Analysis of Minute Samples Down to 50µl
FlowCAM® Touts New, Automated Flow Control Software, Syringe Pump
Yarmouth, ME, USA: The latest FlowCAM® particle imaging and analysis system from laboratory instrumentation manufacturer Fluid Imaging Technologies, Yarmouth, Maine (www.fluidimaging.com) integrates proprietary, new flow control software with its advanced syringe pump to replace manual sample handling and flow control setup with an automated process that enables the operator to load the sample, press start and walk away while the sample runs unattended. Achieving sample volume efficiencies up to 90%, the FlowCAM delivers unprecedented control over the flow rate and throughput volume to ensure virtually the entire sample is properly presented to the flow cell for unparalleled accuracy in the real-time detection, imaging, counting and measurement of particles and microorganisms.
Developed for laboratory managers, QA/QC officers, research scientists and others involved in the production and testing of pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and other high value products, the new FlowCAM effectively processes small, sparse or otherwise limited samples in volumes as minute as 50µl. The new FlowCAM excels in the analysis of parenterals and other biopharmaceuticals as well as with precious metals, explosive powders and other products where detecting every particle or cell present is paramount and extra samples are not available for repeat analysis. For compliance with FDA Title 21 CFR Part 11, the FlowCAM automatically assigns a date/time stamp to all images and measurements and creates an audit trail for future review and analysis.
