PhytoFlash

The PhytoFlash™ is distinct from other variable fluorescence instruments on the market in that it is the first solid-state instrument capable of variable fluorescence measurements on natural concentrations of phytoplankton. The solid-state platform allows for a much wider range of uses due to the small size, power efficiency, more stable components, and lower price point.

Features
  • Red PhytoFlash™ version specific to cyanobacteria available

  • Real time in situ measurement of phytoplankton photosynthetic parameters
  • Operate in three different modes
  • Integrate with a CTD
  • Self-contained with internal datalogging
  • Laboratory mode
  • Extended battery life - 30 second intervals for over 35 days
  • Large internal data logging memory - 10,000 points

Benefits
  • Indicator of nutrient status Precursor for the onset of harmful algae blooms Oceanographic, estuarine, limnological and riverine studies Active Fluorescence
