Application of the AlgaeTorch in the fight against cyanobacteria in a German lake
Blue-green algae blooms occurred regularly in the lake Aasee in 2014 and 2015. These blooms represent a significant health problem and the lake therefore had to be periodically closed to the public.
The Wassmann office was commissioned to combat the cyanobacteria by means of ultrasound. The bbe AlgaeTorch - one of bbe’s fluorometric instruments - is suitable to measure the success of the treatment.
Mr. Wassmann is a long-time customer of the bbe Moldaenke GmbH and relies on the AlgaeTorch and the submersible FluoroProbe to measure the content of cyanobacteria in water. (Author of the original article: Bruno Wansing, bocholt.de)
