New Particle Imaging and Analysis Instrumentation

Jun 09 2010 Comments 0

The new FlowCAM®-XPL Birefringence Imaging and Analysis System (patent pending) from particle imaging and analysis instrumentation manufacturer Fluid Imaging Technologies, features cross-polarising filters to reveal birefringent particles and cells that would otherwise remain invisible and undetectable or unclear under ordinary light conditions while boosting the image contrast vs. microscopy and other imaging techniques. The FlowCAM-XPL permits birefringent particles and cells to be automatically detected, imaged in high resolution, identified and differentiated from each other and from any nonbirefringent particles and cells in a heterogeneous sample. Each image may be characterised based on dozens of measurement parameters in real time and saved along with its corresponding data set for in-depth analysis and collaborative review.

Developed for research scientists, laboratory managers, chemical engineers, food technologists, pharmaceutical chemists, water engineers and other professionals, the automated FlowCAM-XPL rapidly analyses large samples of particles and cells far faster than with manually operated polarised light microscopes and without any slide preparation while yielding more precise, reliable and statistically significant data. Anisotropic particles, such as solid and liquid crystals, sugars, starches, spices, fibers, polymers. ceramics, glass, pharmaceuticals and cells such as from muscle tissue, bone, Zebra and Quagga mussels, and butterfly wings ranging from .5um to 3mm in size, are ideal for study on the new instrumentation.
