BBE Bentho Torch

Bentho Torch
  • Real-time measurement of benthic algal concentrations.
  • A portable field instrument for the in situ quantification of chlorophyll-a fluorescence on different substrates such as stones and sediment.
  • No sample preparation is necessary.
  • A measurement takes up to only 20 seconds to perform.
  • BBE Bentho Torch  for measurement of algal concentrations via fluorescence
  • The intensity of the chlorophyll fluorescence is used to calculate the different algae as chlorophyll-a, namely green algae, blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) and diatoms.
  • The results are shown on the display and stored in the internal memory.
  • An encapsulated USB port enables the data to be transfer to a PC.
  • Allowing deployment in rough conditions.
  • Can be deployed down to a depth of 10 m.
  • Internal rechargeable batteries.
