Researchers often turn to basic microscopy or volumetric analysis techniques to determine the shape, count, concentration, and size distribution of particles within a sample. However, manual microscopy is time-consuming and subject to human error, while volumetric techniques are unsatisfactory for samples composed of heterogeneous particle shapes. Flow imaging microscopy (FIM) for particle analysis combines the benefits of microscopy and volumetric analysis to rapidly measure particles from digital images, producing statistically significant results.
