Handheld Fluorometer - Turbidimeter
The Turner Designs Aquaflour is an inexpensive lightweight handheld instrument for fluorescence and turbidity measurements away from the lab. The dual channel design permits both parameters to be measured on a single sample. There are three versions- the primary channel being configured for either chlorophyll a or Rhodamine WT. The second channel is configured for turbidity. Or the extracted chlorophyll unit which as ammonium for the second channel
