Based on proven FlowCam technology, the FlowCam Cyano automatically identifies cyanobacteria from other algae and particles in aquatic samples. Using a patent-pending combination of excitation wavelength, phycocyanin fluorescence measurement, and image recognition software, the system automates what was previously done using manual microscopy. After differentiating the cyanobacteria from the other algae in the sample, VisualSpreadsheet® software can be used to further characterize specific types of algae found in the sample using 40+ physical parameters.


  • Detect and identify cyanobacteria and other algae in freshwater and marine environments
  • Analyze freshwater and marine samples  -Calculate cell counts, concentration, and biovolume
  • Semi-automate classification of taxa  -Manage drinking water, recreational, or ecologically significant water bodies

FlowCam Cyano Offers:

  • High-sensitivity fluorescence detection (2 channels, phycocyanin and chlorophyll)
  • Ratiometric fluorescence to discriminate cyanobacteria from other algae
  • Classification using 40+ physical parameters measured from each cell
  • Integral biovolume calculations
  • Our intelligent image recognition and analysis software VisualSpreadsheet
  • Faster & easier analysis than manual microscopy
