Phytoplankton Identification & Enumeration Services

Aquatic Analysts, Inc. has an expert phytoplankton taxonomist on it's staff to assist our clients in the accurate identification of problem alga in their pond or lake.

Recording the changes in algal communities is an important lake management tool because algae are sensitive indicators of pollution. 

Microscopic analysis is a major component of our water quality monitoring program to assess the seasonal fluctuation of algal populations and predict potential bloom problems.  AAI will collect the water sample, or it may be collected by the client and delivered or mailed to our laboratory.  Using Utermohl settling chambers, the dominant species will be identified and enumerated.  The results are reported as cells/ml or biovolume (mg/m3).
