Flow Imaging Microscopy Reveals Particles Missed by DLS and NTA

The problem of protein aggregation and presence of extrinsic particles in biopharmaceutical formulations is not a small one. With the improvement of particle analysis technologies, developers are discovering that drug impurities and protein aggregation occur at multiple phases of formulation development, production, and quality control. The goal is to ensure the production of pure and safe biologics that can be shipped and delivered to patients, ensuring their health and safety.

Color vs. Black and White: How to Choose a FlowCam Camera

While most imaging particle analyzers only offer gray-scale (black and white) cameras for image acquisition, the FlowCam offers a choice of either gray-scale or color cameras. This post will explain the difference between these two camera choices, and discuss the inherent trade-offs that should be considered when choosing which camera to use. The summary of recommendations can be found in Figure 1 at right. Keep reading to learn the technology behind this important decision.
