  1. 1. New dimension in water monitoring.
  2. 2. What we do? Detect, Classify, Count Cyanobacteria, algae and other microscopic organisms in your water
  3. 3. Why monitor phyto- and zooplankton? • Dangerous toxins • Dead zones in the water • Drinking water treatment costs • Industries depending on clean water
  4. 4. How it works? 3. Red, Green, Blue laser 3. Camera 2. Sampling 1. Water flow 5. Classification 6. Reports 4. Detection
  5. 5. Volumetric analysis • 500 volumetric images/hour • Classification based on database • Continuous, automated analysis
  6. 6. Comparison of WaterScope and traditional microscope 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
  7. 7. Advantages of the system
  8. 8. Online access Historic reports Userfriendly interface
  9. 9. What can be reconized and identified? • Cyanobacteria, algae • Microscopic animals and their cysts(protozoa, rotifers, nematodes) • Colony forming bacteria having unique shape (iron, manganese, sulphur bacteria) • Pollens • Fungi
  10. 10. Images taken by WaterScope I. Nitschia Ankistrodesmus Scenedesmus Tetraedron Euglena Phacus Pediastrum Crucigenia
  11. 11. Images taken by WaterScope II. Anabaena Aphanizomenon Spirulina Cylindrospermopsis Microcystis Aphanothece
  12. 12. Images taken by WaterScope III. Nematodes Ciliates Flagellates Rotifers
  13. 13. Areas of application Water and wastewater works Surface waters Fish farms Process water in the food&bev, industry Industrial waters Laboratories and research centres
  14. 14. 2 size options WaterScope Mono WaterScope Micro Typical organisms Worms, nematodes, flagellata, rotifiers Algae, iron bacteria, some funghi Analyzed volume 1,5-2l/hour 1-2ml/hour Size of objects 30-300 µm 5-100 µm Method of analysis morphological morphological and colour Display / early warning / data connection Yes / email, sms, web / LAN, WAN, m bus Dimensions 400×250×600 mm
  15. 15. Summary • Multiple areas of application • Low maintenance requirement, automated operation • Table top version
