Total Algae Sensor: Monitor Harmful Algal Blooms


Total Algae Sensors

Harmful algal blooms (or HABs) are becoming more frequent, intense, and are now seen by many as a public threat. For this reason, now more than ever, water quality monitors and managers need reliable tools that can help them monitor, reduce, and manage the impacts of harmful algal blooms.

Why is the Total Algae Sensor (TAL) from YSI the Right Tool to Fight Harmful Algal Blooms?


They help with early detection by allowing easy collection of data on blue-green algae for data analysis with consideration of weather conditions as well as other important parameters.


Built for the field, this sensor features welded titanium construction and military-specification connectors which are ideal for rugged conditions. Similar to other smart sensors, the TAL sensor has onboard memory, processing, and allows for sensor-zeroing to be performed on-site.

Main Features:Total-Algae-Bloom-Sensor-Brochure

  • Detect the onset of an algae bloom as early as possible to plan your response
  • Support a rational approach for the collection of samples for other laboratory analyses, saving you time and money
  • Understand the seasonal and weather-related patterns of algae growth in your system
  • Understand the relevance of other parameters like pH, dissolved oxygen, and temperature

There are two sensors available:


The Total Algae-Phycoerythrin (TAL-PE) for saltwater, used for monitoring marine cyanobacteria and the Total Algae-Phycocyanin (TAL-PC) a dual-channel fluorescence-based sensor, perfect for monitoring freshwater cyanobacteria. Bot are ideal for early detection of blue-green algae that could lead to harmful algal blooms.

The Total Algae sensor is ideal for applications like beach monitoring, vertical or horizontal profiling, and source water monitoring for potentially toxic algae – especially when paired with the ProDSS multiparamter system or the EXO sondes.

ProDSS Total Algae PE Sensor
PART NO. X-626211

The ProDSS Total Algae-Phycoerythrin (TAL-PE) saltwater sensor is used for early detection of blue-green algae, which can lead to harmful algal blooms.


This dual-channel fluorescence-based sensor has a channel for the accessory pigment phycoerythrin, commonly found in saltwater blue-green algae. The second channel, however, is for chlorophyll, which can be relevant for all types of problematic algae, including red tide and brown tide algae.


The Total Algae sensor is perfect for applications like beach monitoring, vertical or horizontal profiling, and source water monitoring for potentially toxic algae - especially when paired with the ProDSS multiparamter system.


Built for the field, this sensor features welded titanium construction and military-specification connectors which are ideal for rugged conditions. Similar to other smart sensors, the TAL has onboard memory, processing, and allows for sensor-zeroing to be performed on-site.

ProDSS Total Algae PC Sensor
PART NO. X-626210

The ProDSS Total Algae-Phycocyanin (TAL-PC) freshwater smart sensor is a dual-channel fluorescence-based sensor used for early detection of blue-green algae which can lead to harmful algal blooms.


This sensor has two channels: one for phycocyanin, an accessory pigment commonly found in freshwater blue-green algae, and one for chlorophyll a, found in all algae.


The Total Algae sensor is perfect for applications like beach monitoring, vertical or horizontal profiling, and source water monitoring for potentially toxic algae – especially when paired with the ProDSS multiparamter system.


Built for the field, this sensor features welded titanium construction and military-specification connectors which are ideal for rugged conditions. Similar to other smart sensors, the TAL has onboard memory, processing, and allows for sensor-zeroing to be performed on-site.
