Optical instrument for cyanobacteria detection

The Enviro-T2 can estimate the abundance of algae and cyanobacteria.

US fluorimetry expert Turner Designs has released Enviro-T2, an in-line fluorometer said to be ideal for drinking water or wastewater facilities that want to detect cyanobacteria and algae in their water flow.

The device is described as an accurate, single-channel fluorometer which easily integrates with data collection systems providing a 4 – 20 mA output proportional to the fluorescence from chlorophyll in water.  The Enviro-T2 Red Excitation Fluorometer has maximum sensitivity for better detection of cyanobacteria; the Enviro-T2 Blue Excitation Fluorometer is configured with maximum sensitivity to all other algal groups. 

Enviro-T2 uses solid-state optoelectronics making it a reliable, high performance, rugged continuous sampling device, according to the firm.
