Overview

The FluoroSea allows you to quickly and easily observe algae.

Applications

Harmful Algae Blooms
Aquaculture
Shellfisheries
Municipal water quality
Recreational waterways
General public health

Benefits

Go beyond chlorophyll
The combination of individual cell
fluorescence signals and image based
cell sizes provides
indices of abundance
from discrete taxonomic groups

Real-time
Real-time in-situ observation algae

Portable
Lightweight, easy to deploy, rugged

Low maintenance
The sample delivery system contains copper to reduce bio-fouling, and cleans the windows as a it moves into and out of the sample space

Save Time
With near real-time data, that requires no sample preparation, the FluoroSea acts as a first line of defense in gathering information without any critical time lags

Customizable for taxonomic groups across the globe
Users can enter characteristic fluorescence ratios and
sizes for taxonomic groups of different interest for automated
classification with Jellyfish software.
