Early identification of harmful algal blooms (HABs) is important for protecting public health. CyanoFluor is a field-portable fluorometer which can quickly estimate the abundance of cyanobacteria in a mixed algal population using PC (phycocyanin) to CHL (chlorophyll) ratios. Monitoring PC to CHL ratios over time enables users to predict the onset of HABs and leverage resources to mitigate their harmful effects.

Raw water samples can be quickly analyzed with results displayed in less than 30 seconds. Simply insert a cuvette with your sample and press READ. PC:CHL ratios are displayed and logged and can be downloaded at a later time.

CyanoFluor is factory-calibrated meaning no calibration is required; RFU values can be correlated to µg/L using conversion coefficients. Solid-state opto-electronics ensure long term instrument stability. CyanoFluor’s intuitive functions, small size, and internal data storage make it an ideal field instrument for HAB monitoring.

Covid clears the waters around Key West

In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a period of unexpected environmental optimism. Wild goats roamed the streets of a town in Wales after its residents retreated indoors. Air quality improved in metropolises around the world. As shipping paused or slowed down, the oceans were quieter than they have been for some time. Now research shows that water quality improved around Key West, Florida, during 2020, a year in which the Covid-19 pandemic kept people indoors and slowed boat traffic. A Visible Difference Henry Briceño first found out about the clearer water around Key West from locals who noticed a difference. So he decided to check those observations against the data.

Charles River Algal Blooms Stop Swimming and Launch a Floating Wetland

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents. Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river. An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.
