Great instrument but it has some room to improve
Application Area: Protein aggregate
"We have the first generation Nano instrument and it's a little hard to operate it. The oil leaks every time and this leakage actually makes a hassle when changing flow cells. It makes us reinstall all the apparatus whenever changing them. And focusing on this instrument ain't easy (This guy only offers a manual focusing). It requires some level of skills and experience."
Manufacturer's ResponseDear Dr. Kim, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We’re sorry to hear about the challenges with the instrument, and our Customer Care team is currently working with you to resolve these. We would also like to let you know that we’ve improved ease of use and incorporated autofocus capability in our recently released second-generation FlowCam Nano. Sincerely, Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies
FlowCam® Nano provides dynamic image analysis of submicron particles from 300 nm to 2 µm, bridging the gap between traditional flow imaging microscopy and other particle analysis techniques. Use FlowCam Nano for early detection of aggregates and contaminant monitoring for protein formulations, nano-drug delivery systems, characterization of bacteria, bioprocess monitoring, and materials characterization.
FlowCam Nano is a flow imaging microscope for submicron particle imaging in biopharmaceutical and other materials applications. Its advanced optical imaging capabilities enable detection and morphological analysis of the smallest particles observable using light microscopy. Detect submicron-sized particles including protein aggregates and small oligomers of drug delivery vehicles like LNPs and exosomes to proactively improve product stability and quality—even before larger particles are present.
