It was identified that the use of fluorescence in the field could be significantly improved in relation to data reliability and range by incorporating a number of fluorescence channels into one sensor, and augmenting these with a turbidity, absorption and temperature channels. With careful design we recognised that a single multiparameter fluorometer could provide a flexible platform which could be easily configured to detect a number of required fluorometric parameters. Based on demand for our established Lux range of fluorometers it was apparent that there would be calls for four main variants on the new instrument, detection of Algae, BTEX, Crude Hydrocarbons and Tryptophan-like fluorescence (for Bacterial monitoring and measurements of Biological Oxygen Demand).
"We are delighted the introduce the new V-Lux Multi-parameter fluorometer," said CTG's Sales Manager, Justin Dunning. V-Lux will be on show at Sensing in Water (27-28 September) but if you would like more information in the meantime, please contact Justin Dunning Tel: +44(0)20 8481 9031.
