Cyanobacteria Handheld Fluorometer

Based on W2 Optronics’s handheld fluorometer platform, the handheld Cyanobacteria Fluorometer provides exceptional sensitivity, rapid-reading, and reliability at a much lower cost compared to the industrial standards. This is an important device for rapid quantitative detection of Cyanobacteria in nature water resources, power plants, and utility water plants. Standard calibration is easily done via the touch-screen. Built-in USB interface allows user to retrieve up to 80 data points for each of the three assays stored in the memory. Two models are available for two most common types of cyanobacteria. (Application Note)

FQ-530/590-A for phycoerythrin (in marine water such as Synechococcus)
FQ-600/650-A for Phycocyanin (in fresh water such as blue-green algae)
