Hand-held algal monitor
The bbe AlgaeTorch is a portable algal monitor for quantitative "field" measurement of blue-green algae and total chlorophyll in marine and fresh waters. The measurement is based on the natural fluorescence of chlorophyll within algae cells and avoids the need for any sample preparation. The measurement takes less than 15 seconds. No sample preparation. Just switch it on, dip it in and read the display!
The AlgaeTorch comes in two different versions: 10 m and 100m. The 100m version has a pressure sensor for depth measurement. Both versions have optional turbidity measurement.
