The CyanoFluor is a handheld, portable fluorometer which can provide an indication of changing environmental conditions, leading to Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs).
The CyanoFluor can analyse raw water samples and display results in less than 30 seconds. It is field ready, requires no calibration, and is incredibly stable and reliable over time.
The CyanoFluor quickly estimates the abundance of cyanobacteria in a mixed algal population using PC (phycocyanin) to CHL (chlorophyll) ratios. Monitoring PC to CHL ratios over time enables users to predict the onset of HABs and leverage resources to mitigate their harmful effects.
• Handheld, battery-powered fluorometer with internal data logging
• Factory calibrated
• Results in less than 30 seconds
Raw water samples can be quickly analysed, with results in less than 30 seconds. Simply insert a 4-sided clear 10×10 mm square glass or quartz cuvette with your sample and press READ.
The PC:CHL ratios are displayed and logged to be downloaded later. Raw fluorescence readings are also displayed, these can be correlated with µg/L chlorophyll concentrations.
CyanoFluor is factory-calibrated meaning no calibration is required; RFU values can be correlated to µg/L using conversion coefficients. Solid-state opto-electronics ensure long term instrument stability.
CyanoFluor’s intuitive functions, small size, and internal data storage make it an ideal field instrument for HAB monitoring.
