UviLux WasteWater Sensors from Chelsea Technologies
UviLux WasteWater Sensors
The UviLux Wastewater Sensors from Chelsea Technologies are highly sensitive for real-time, in situ detection of Tryptophan-like fluorescence (TLF)/BOD or Optical Brighteners (OBA).
UviLux is a highly sensitive fluorometer that has excellent turbidity rejection and high ambient light rejection, making it suitable for use in natural waters (1000m depth) and wastewater treatment works.

The sensitivity and calibrated range of each UViLux Tryptophan sensor has been standardised by cross-correlating each calibration solution against a certified reference standard of quinine sulphate using a bench-top spectrofluorometer. Fluorescence is reported in Quinine Sulphate Units (QSU), where 1 QSU is equivalent to the fluorescence intensity recorded from 1 ppb quinine sulphate at an excitation wavelength of 347.5 nm and an emission wavelength of 450 nm. Factors are provided for selected compounds to convert the fluorescence output from QSU to ppb of the compound of interest
