Chelsea Technologies Group's BACTI-Station and BACTI-Station Pro systems allow laboratory managers, process scientists and engineers to assess real-time levels of bacteria in water systems. This is achieved by detecting UV Tryptophan fluorescence, which has been shown to correlate with bacterial levels.
The BACTI-Station comprises of a CTG UviLux fluorometer and a Watchkeeper wall mounted data display and logger. CTG’s UviLux fluorometers detect UV fluorescence with industry- leading sensitivity and selectivity and have been optimised for minimal interference from water turbidity. Data is displayed on the Watchkeeper’s colour touchscreen and is logged internally. Up to three 4 - 20mA outputs are provided for data transmission.
