Tryptophan Conference 2020

A new approach to water quality monitoring

Chelsea Technologies is pleased to announce the introduction of a new Tryptophan conference -Tryptophan Fluorescence 2020 on the 23rd January 2020.

The conference offers the opportunity for practitioners and aquatic scientists to learn about the latest advancements in the exciting field of Tryptophan.

Following 50 years of research on aquatic fluorescing organic matter in ground, surface and wastewater systems, attention turned to Tryptophan, a new and promising approach to water quality monitoring in aquatic systems.

While initial research over a decade ago focussed on correlating Tryptophan Fluorescence to other water quality markers, such as Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD5), or as an indicator of sewage/faecal contamination in waterways, it is now increasingly being recognised as a valuable water quality parameter in its own right. Recent research demonstrates that Tryptophan Fluorescence correlates to bacterial activity prior to cell growth.

The Tryptophan conference will feature talks from academic pioneers, cutting-edge researchers and leading industrialists, who together have driven world leading science and innovation that could lead to a paradigm shift in the way we monitor our aquatic systems.

Tickets are available free of charge. For further information please contact Chelsea Technologies on +44(0)20 8481 9000 or visit the webpage at:
