Download the Free Technical Note: Algae Measurements Using In Vivo Fluorescence! Phytoplankton are microscopic, free-floating photosynthetic plants and bacteria that are commonly found in surface waters throughout the world. Aquatic scientists and water resource managers measure phytoplankton to gain a more in depth understanding on ecological dynamics, ecological health, nutrient status, and harmful algal bloom potential in aquatic systems. Submersible fluorescence sensors help to make this measurement easy, efficient, and economical by enabling real-time field estimates of phytoplankton biomass that can be directly correlated to quantitative laboratory measurements using standard methods.

Download the Quality Assurance and Quality Control Technical Note Now! The primary activities taken to assure and control data quality are aptly called quality assurance and quality control. Determining the “true value” of a water quality measurement is an important fundamental of any QA/QC program. To determine the true value, many professionals apply a second means of measuring the parameter of interest, such as another instrument that is kept serviced and calibrated just for quality control purposes or a grab sample that is evaluated using a trusted laboratory technique. Instruments such as HYDROLAB's produce high quality data for many applications and by leveraging the HYDROLAB Operating System you can maximize uptime with streamlined calibration tasks.
