Automated Filter Residue/Particle Analysis System

Product Announcement from Olympus Corporation of the Americas - Scientific Solutions Group


The Olympus Automated Filter Analysis System accurately detects, counts, classifies, and measures residue/particulates in filters (which are generally 47mm in diameter) in less than 2 minutes. Optical images of residue are generated and, after analysis, can be documented in report templates according to ISO and USP standards. The process is fast and minimizes operator errors.

Platforms are the BX upright microscope (for high resolution and identification of small particles >1 micron) and the SZX 7 stereo microscope (for larger particles and faster inspection).
