The FlowCam is being used to transform and improve microscopic analyses in a variety of aquatic fields, such as:
Drinking Water Monitoring: Automatically detect & enumerate cyanobacteria and other nuisance algae that cause taste & odor problems before a bloom occurs.
Oceanography & Limnology: Count, measure & identify phytoplankton and zooplankton, including harmful algae.
Algae Cultivation: Perform optimization experiments faster while collecting more data. Monitor culture growth and health in production.
Aquaculture: Detect harmful algae that may produce toxins and track trends over time.
The FlowCam adds speed, objectivity, and repeatability, allowing users to collect statistically significant datasets more quickly and to replicate procedures more easily between users. Images collected can be used to verify sample integrity, collaborate with other scientists, and analyze data later - even offsite.
