Remote tablet control for FlowCAM

Yarmouth, Maine-based laboratory instrumentation manufacturer Fluid Imaging Technologies has introduced remote operation for the automated FlowCAM® imaging particle analysis system.

Available on the entire line of portable, benchtop, submersible and PV Series FlowCAMs, the remote desktop capability enables operators to start running a sample, monitor its progress, adjust measurement parameters on-the-fly and analyze images and data in real-time, all while working on other tasks away from the instrumentation and without requiring direct supervision.

Accessible at the processing line, while attending meetings, on research vessels, outside in the field and at other on-site and off-site locations, the FlowCAM may be operated remotely on Android-based computer tablets, iPads and other tablets using all of the same FlowCAM controls and interactive features available on the desktop instrumentation.

Developed for lab managers, process engineers, water/wastewater engineers, research scientists and others, the patented FlowCAM automatically takes thousands of high resolution, digital images of individual particles and microorganisms in seconds, measures and characterizes each one based on up to 32 different parameters and saves them for analysis.

The remote operation capability may be retrofit on FlowCAM particle analyzers currently in the field.
