ECO FL

The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of single channel fluorometers delivers both high resolution and wide ranges across our entire line of parameters using 14 bit digital processing. The ECO series excels in biological monitoring and dye trace studies. The potted optics block results in long term stability of the instrument and the optional anti-biofouling technology delivers truly long term field measurements.

Chlorophyll-a

Chlorophyll-a fluorescence is an indicator of active phytoplankton biomass and chlorophyll concentrations. This measurement is used for tracking biological variability and abundance in the water column.
 
Colored Dissolved Organic Matter

Organic Matter The CDOM ECO allows you to obtain CDOM fluorescence across a wide range of environments, from mangrove swamps to oligotrophic blue water.
 
Uranine (fluorescein) & Rhodamine

The ideal combination of linearity, sensitivity and range for dye studies. Detection limits in parts per trillion allows for precise patch determination and first arrival timing as well as reducing the necessary initial dye concentration.
 
Phycoerythrin & Phycocyanin

ECO phycobilin fluorometers have the high resolution necessary for early detection of either blue-green (phycocyanin) or brown (phycoerythrin) algae. These fluorometers are relative measurement instruments and should be calibrated by cell counts for a particular water mass.
