FlowCam Cyano detects cyanobacteria, other algae, and particles in water samples. Using the organism’s fluorescent signature to differentiate cyanobacteria from other algae, VisualSpreadsheet® further classifies taxa through image analysis.
FlowCam Cyano provides a cost-effective, fast, and easy solution to monitor source water, reservoirs, and water treatment processes. A high throughput, semi-automated alternative to manual microscopy, FlowCam helps water utilities and other freshwater monitoring agencies reduce labor hours, save money on testing, and eliminate customer complaints.
