UniLux Dye Tracing Sensor configured for monitoring Rhodamine or Fluoroscein

Unilux Algae Sensor to monitor Chlorophyll a, Phycocyanin, Phycoerythrin, TurbidityChelsea Technologies Group’s UniLux Dye Tracing Sensor is a low cost, miniaturised dye tracing sensor configured for monitoring either Rhodamine or Fluorescein with high sensitivity.

 

The sensor includes an array of LEDs to provide intense fluorescence excitation, which enables highly sensitive dye detection. The use of fluorescence quality bandpass filters provides target selectivity with excellent turbidity-rejection.


There are two configurations available:

  • UniLux Rhodamine
  • UniLux Fluorescein

Background

Chelsea Technologies Group’s UniLux Dye Tracing Sensor is a low cost, miniature fluorometer for in situ operation. The sensor includes an array of LEDs to provide intense fluorescence excitation, which enables highly sensitive dye detection. The use of fluorescence quality bandpass filters provides target selectivity with excellent turbidity-rejection.
 
There are two configurations available which are typically used for dye tracing operations:
  • UniLux Rhodamine
  • UniLux Fluorescein
 
Rhodamine or Fluorescein are often incorporated as tracers in a range of chemical products, making UniLux a suitable sensor for tracing these formulations. If you are unsure whether UniLux can detect your products, please contact CTG for confirmation. UniLux can be combined with the CTG Hawk handheld display and logging unit to form the portable DYE-Wader system. It can also be combined with the Watchkeeper wall mounted display and logging unit to form the permanently installed DYE-Station system.
