TriLux

 

Low cost, miniature algae sensor that monitors three key algal parameters in a single probe.

 

TriLux is a low cost, miniature algae sensor that monitors three key algal parameters in a single, highly sensitive probe. The 3-in-1 fluorometer enables widespread monitoring in a variety of applications, including harmful algal blooms, aquaculture, water treatment works, river catchments and coastal studies.

 

With three different parameter combinations and depth ratings to 2000m, TriLux is suitable for a wide variety of water environments:

 

• Chlorophyll a, Phycocyanin, Turbidity for freshwater deployments

• Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin, Phycocyanin for coastal deployments

• Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin, Turbidity for marine deployments

 

TriLux is compact and easy to integrate in wider systems and platforms including CTDs, data buoys, monitoring stations, AUVs and gliders.
