The FluoroSense is a lightweight, highly durable handheld fluorometer for quick in situ field measurements. The fluorometer is factory calibrated and can display results within seconds. It is a single-device solution with no need for probes or additional calculations.

The FluoroSense is available in two optical configurations, chlorophyll and phycocyanin (PC), therefore can assist with identifying PC-containing algae typically associated with Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). Obtaining both PC and chlorophyll estimates helps in determining whether additional testing is required to check toxicity levels in a body of water.

Key Features

• >10,000 measurements per AA battery set
• Low maintenance, one button operation
• Dustproof, waterproof, highly durable

The FluoroSense is the only portable, handheld field fluorometer on the market which has an LCD screen to display the measurements whilst the optics are submerged. Others on the market require an external display or sample collections, which is less simple to operate.

Due to the probe being factory calibrated (for a linear range of 0-199 µg/L), the only maintenance required is simply rinsing after use.
