The new FlowCam + LO combines the FlowCam's patented flow imaging microscopy technology with an embedded light obscuration module.
Now, for the first time, you can obtain LO data to meet regulatory requirements, and also verify your data with real images, all with a single instrument, and one sample run. In the FlowCam + LO, a single sample passes continuously through two flow cells. The first uses FlowCam technology to capture digital images, and the second uses a light obscuration module to provide data necessary for USP 787/788 compliance.
