Details

Blue-green algae (a. k. a. cyanobacteria) monitoring is of growing interest due to the problems some species can present through the production of toxins and compounds that deteriorate the quality of drinking water and through the formation of blooms. Blue-green algae are of interest for ecosystem studies and monitoring as well, where they may represent the most abundant primary producer. Click on the YSI 6131 Spec Sheet above to learn more about the blue-green algae sensor methodology.

The YSI 6131 blue-green algae sensor is fully compatible with all YSI 6-series sondes equipped with optical ports. YSI's optical sensors use an integrated wiping system to provide anti-fouling in the most hostile environments. Durable mechanical features include a non-corroding titanium wiper shaft, replaceable wiper shaft seal, and a new switch controlled wiper parking system to prevent mis-parking.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Does my sensor need to be cleaned after deployment?
After deployment, inspect for fouling and gently clean the sensor head. Wipers may need to be replaced depending on usage.
How long can I keep my Rhodamine WT dilution?
After diluting the Rhodamine WT solution, it should be used within 5 days.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.
