FlowCam Flow Imaging Microscopy

The FlowCam captures high-resolution, digital images of particles suspended in a liquid medium.

Over 40 physical parameters from each image are measured while the data is processed with paired software VisualSpreadsheet. Use real digital images to verify the size, shape, and identity of your particles. 

New applications of particle analysis are constantly being developed.

From the characterization of algae and cyanobacteria in drinking water, to the identification of protein aggregates and contaminents in biopharmaceuticals, to the analysis of printer toner shape/size, and food and beverage products, the FlowCam can do it all. If it’s a liquid, or can be suspended in a liquid, analyze it on the FlowCam flow imaging microscope.  

Applications include:

  • Biopharmaceuticals
  • Drinking Water Monitoring
  • Food and Beverage
  • Abrasives
  • Column Packing Material
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Microencapsulation
  • Printing Ink and Toner
  • Cosmetics and Fragrances
  • Oil and Gas
  • Washwater
  • Aquatic Research


FlowCam and VisualSpreadsheet are trade mark.
