What we do?
Cyanobacteria, algae and other microscopic organisms in
Why monitor phyto- and zooplankton?
• Dangerous toxins
• Dead zones in the water
• Drinking water treatment costs
• Industries depending on clean water
How it works?
3. Red, Green,
1. Water flow
• 500 volumetric images/hour
• Classification based on database
Comparison of WaterScope and traditional
LIGHT MICROSCOPE WATERSCOPE
Quick analysis of single sample Quick analysis of multiple sample
Less sample per timeframe Lot of sample per timeframe
Sample preparation necessary Sample preparation unnecessary
Requires educated workforce No workforce requirement
Accuracy depends on the person Highly precise accuracy
Manually documentated measurement Automatically archived documentation
What can be reconized and identified?
• Cyanobacteria, algae
• Microscopic animals and their cysts(protozoa,
• Colony forming bacteria having unique shape (iron,
manganese, sulphur bacteria)
