Phycocyanin+Chlorophyll Dual-Channel Fluorometer Field Kit
As part of the US-EPA's cyanobacteria monitoring collaborative program, Amiscience's dual-channel phycocyanin & chlorophyll fluorometers have been used in the monitoring of algal bloom in freshwater systems. By monitoring the growth behavior of phycocyanin and chlorophyll concentrations, and the ratio of phycocyanin/chlorophyll, one can predict the algal bloom in advance and take proactive measures to mitigate the health and economical risks of imminent algal blooms. The field kit contains convenient carrying case to hold accessories for field data collection and analysis.
