Chelsea Technologies Group’s AquaTracka III provides highly sensitive data on fluorescence parameters including Chlorophyll a, Rhodamine, Fluorescein or Turbidity, configured by factory-set fluorometer optics.
The AquaTracka III detects fluorescence. When dissolved compounds (that are of a fluorescent nature) absorb light they re-emit a fraction of this energy as fluorescence at longer wavelengths. Fluorescence intensity is directly proportional to concentration. The technique is widely recognised as one of the most sensitive detection methods available. A low power rugged pulsed xenon light source is used in conjunction with a virtually indestructible photodiode detector and a reference channel monitoring the intensity of each flash, providing excellent calibration stability over long time intervals.
