Turner Designs has provided sensitive, reliable, easy-to-use fluorometers to the marine community for more than 40 years. The company contends that it supplies more filter fluorometers than any other company.
Turner Designs provides innovative fluorescence-based solutions for basic environmental research, water quality analysis, environmental monitoring, and pollution control analysis.  Turner Designs is continuously expanding its repertoire of optical instruments to meet new application requirements. Standard optical configurations include in vivo and extracted Chlorophyll, blue-green algal pigments such as phycocyanin and phycoerythrin, active fluorescence for measuring fluorescence yield in marine research as well as ballast-water compliance checking, Dissolved Organic Matter (Algal as well as Terrestrial), ammonium, optical brighteners and tryptophan for wastewater monitoring, dye tracers, and crude and refined oils as well as infrared wavelengths used to detect turbidity. Custom optical configurations are readily available for most packages. Standard package configurations include submersible, handheld, field, laboratory, online, and configured for integration into vehicles.
Data acquisition is available real-time and through several datalogging possibilities. Submersible instruments can be configured for depth profiling, long-term monitoring and horizontal mapping with GPS-integration at depths up to 6000 meters. Solid Secondary Standards which enable quick instrument verification and calibration checks are available for most applications and are known to hold their value over several years of usage.
