Monitoring algal growth in test tubes without affecting algal cultures is a challenge for researchers. Turner Designs recently demonstrated an excellent solution to this concern using two of our standard products – C-FLUOR Chlorophyll probe with our In-Line Adaptor

Multiple algal cultures were diluted to low concentrations of chlorophyll. Cultures were evenly distributed into 25 mm diameter glass test tubes and placed in a room temp environment near a window for exposure to natural light.  Gro...

Parameters:  Chlorophyll

This research evaluates the effect of an annual cyanobacterial bloom upon deep chlorophyll maximum formation and net ecosystem productivity mirrored as changes in gross primary productivity (GPP) and respiration (R) rates.  View presentation

We now sell a Chlorophyll Standard Solution (PN 2100-320) for direct concentration calibration of our Cyclops Chlorophyll Fluorometers. This standard represents an equivalent chlorophyll concentration of 40µg/L which can be used to convert the sensor’s voltage response to concentration units enabling users to estimate chlorophyll as µg/L. It’s important to note that this calibration is an approximation. Actual µg/L estimates will vary depending on factors such as speciation, light history, algal...

Benthic Algae Nutrient Limitation Along an Elevation Gradient in the Poudre Watershed, Colorado Benthic algae are important primary producers in lotic ecosystems, but excess algae can harm aquatic communities. Identifying factors that modulate algal nutrient limitation is critical for effective stream management. In summer 2015, vials filled with nutrient-diffusing agar (N, P, N+P, Control) were deployed in seven Colorado mountain streams, spanning an elevation...
