Dr John Attridge Presents On 'Traceability And Linearisation Of In Situ Fluorescence Measurements Using The New V-Lux Sensor' At The SWIG Workshop, 7 March 2018 At Clare College, Cambridge


Dr Attridge presenting on “Traceability and linearisation of in situ fluorescence measurements using the new V-Lux sensor” at the SWIG “Latest developments in water sensors" Workshop on 7 March at Clare College, Cambridge.

During the workshop, CTG's Justin Dunning will also be demonstrating the Lux family of portable and on-line systems for measurements of Algae parameters, Hydrocarbons, CDOM and Bacteria (Tryptophan-like fluorescence) and delegates will have an opportunity to see the new V-Lux Sensor.

The V-Lux is configured to provide high quality in situ detection of either Algae, Aromatic Hydrocarbons or Tryptophan like fluorescence.

“Field fluorometers have traditionally been challenged by interfering fluorescence from non-target compounds, high turbidity levels and high concentrations which can directly impact the accuracy of the readings obtained,” said CTG Sales Manager, Justin Dunning. “This new fluorometer includes 3 fluorescence channels as well as absorption, turbidity and temperature channels which allow corrections from these potential interferences, providing unambiguous data of the target compounds and providing range levels previously unobtainable from field fluorometers.”

V-Lux is ideally suited for monitoring within both water and waste water processes, as well as environmental monitoring for pollution within both river and marine environments. Applications include monitoring of road and airport apron run-off, bathing waters and shellfish waters monitoring, and discharge monitoring within the oil and gas sector.

Physical and chemical sensors are at the heart of virtually all measurement systems. During the past decades, they have become smaller, more rugged and stable, leading to better reliable systems. The SWIG workshop will highlight developments and improvements to sensors and sensing technologies. It will discuss how information supplied from reliable sensors is vital for the development of big data analytics and creates the options for novel applications and alternative measurements. The overall goal will be to provide information to allow water companies to make better measurements in the future.
