In-Situ’s blue-green algae sensors help consultants and researchers more effectively measure phycocyanin cyanobacteria in freshwater environments. Features include Integrated Optical Compensation to compensate for LED drift over temperature and time, Ambient Light Rejection for more reliable performance, and Isolated Optical Frequencies to minimize interference and improve accuracy.


Integrated Optical Compensation

Integrated Optical Compensation uses a second detector to measure the LED drift and automatically compensate each reading.

Low-Interference Spectral Bands

Separate chlorophyll a and BGA sensors excite a smaller range of the light spectrum and increase accuracy while minimizing interference from other fluorescence sources.

Isolated Optical Frequencies

Each In-Situ optical sensor runs at a unique frequency that creates a digital signature for each light source. This signature allows the system to separate out interference between sensors and improves overall system accuracy.

Ambient Light Rejection

Ambient Light Rejection separates the light from the sensor from other ambient light sources, enabling the same degree of accuracy regardless of lighting conditions or deployment location.

Fast-Response Sensors

In-Situ’s smart sensors are designed to quickly reach stability enabling both long-term and spot-check monitoring.
