Flow Particle Imaging Analyzer

Biosafety Level 1 - Surface Characterization


The Sysmex FPIA 3000 is a fully automated dynamic flow particle imaging instrument for the rapid and reliable measurement of the shape and size of particles in suspension. Samples pass through the measurement cell and images of the particles are captured using stroboscopic illumination and a CCD camera. The patented sheath-flow cell is optimal for imaging particles and keeps the smallest particles in sharp focus. High resolution particle size and shape information is easily obtainable.

Instrument Uses

  • Particle Characterization


  • Liquids


  • Particle range 0.8 μm to 300 μm (hard upper limit)
