Fluid Imaging Technologies

The FlowCam Nano is the first nanoflow imaging particle analysis system. It features a patented oil immersion, flow-imaging technology paired with the image-analysis software VisualSpreadsheet® to provide a comprehensive particle analysis research and development tool for parenteral drug analysis. Users have the ability to image and analyze particles ranging 300 nm to 10 μm in size, while collecting relative quantifications of intrinsic, extrinsic, and inherent particles in parenteral drugs. Finally, researchers can use morphological data to identify the structure and nature of contaminants and improve product development.
