Algal Online Monitor is a portable and robust device for online detection and continuous monitoring of photosynthetic microorganisms in both natural and artificial water bodies. It detects variety of cyanobacteria, green and brown algae, diatoms, and other microbes. Its extremely high sensitivity (30 ng Chl/l) allows early detection of very low concentrations of these organisms.


KEY FEATURES:

  • Ultra-high sensitive, flow-through monitoring

  • Detection limit 30 ng Chl/l

  • Wide range of detected organisms: cyanobacteria, green and brown algae, diatoms, and other microorganisms

  • Variable excitation colors

  • Device modifications for phycoerythrin or phycocyanin (optional)
