FlowCam® Cyano was developed for the early detection of harmful cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) in fresh bodies of water. Based on proven dynamic imaging particle analysis (DIPA) technology, the new patent-pending FlowCam Cyano examines a fluid under a microscope, takes images of the magnified particles within that fluid, and characterizes the particles using a variety of measurements. The system uses an ultra-high-precision, computer-controlled syringe pump to pull the fluid sample through a flow cell perpendicular to the optical path. Applications include early detection and monitoring of cyanobacteria, algal population dynamics and classification, and water resource management and research.
