Harmful algae bloom (HAB) instrument

The LISST-HAB is a self-contained, stand-alone instrument system for use on profiling packages, towed and remote vehicle applications, for deployment during a HAB event. The system will continuously measure particle size distribution and concentration, along with the fluorescence of Phycocyanin (Freshwater HAB’s), Phycoerythrin (Marine HAB’s), Chlorophyll and beam attenuation.

Early identification of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) is key to mitigating their effects and protecting public health. Turner Designs’ CyanoFluor is a new handheld fluorometer equipped with optics for detecting chlorophyll (CHL) and phycocyanin (PC) responses from natural water samples. CyanoFluor uses these responses to calculate and report a PC to CHL ratio for estimating the relative abundance of cyanobacteria within a phytoplankton population. By monitoring PC to CHL ratios over time, users ca...

Turner Designs offers phycocyanin (PC) as an optical configuration of the FluoroSense Handheld Fluorometer to assist with identification of PC containing algae typically associated with Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). Obtaining both PC and chlorophyll estimates helps in determining whether additional testing is required to check toxicity levels in a body of water.  The FluoroSense is the smallest, easiest to use handheld fluorometer available.  Its simple two-button keypad enables users to quickly...
