AquaFluor® is a lightweight, inexpensive, handheld fluorometer/turbidimeter
ideal for field use. Its small size and durability make the AquaFluor® perfect for
the user who needs quick measurements away from the laboratory. Dual-channel capability allows users to measure fluorescence and turbidity in one sample.
While small in size, performance has not been compromised
Dual channels allow for quick
toggling between two applications
Dustproof and waterproof, it even floats!
Five-point plus blank calibration for increased accuracy
12 bit resolution
Operates using AAA batteries for >1,000
measurements per set
* Ammonium linear range >10 μM requires minicell adapter and minicell ** PC linear range >3500 ppb requires minicell adapter and minicells ***Specifications for Osberg Crude Oil
