Unusual fluorometers supplied to SAHFOS

SAHFOS (Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science) have installed several new multi-spectral fluorometers onto their “Continuous Plankton Recorders” (CPRs) to enhance their collection of data.

The JFE MFL05W-USB multi-frequency fluorometers were supplied by Swale Technologies and will allow the simultaneous detection of several phytoplankton forms – (diatoms, dinoflagellates, green algae, cryptophyta and cyanobacteria) through excitation by LEDs emitting 9 separate wavelengths of light. The instruments also include depth and temperature sensors and include a mechanical wiper to ensure the optical sensor window remains clean.
