The ability to deal with harsh conditions is paramount, and the RBRconcerto C.T.D is designed with this in mind. Unlike other instruments, the RBR conductivity cell is based on high strength ceramics and shock-absorbing plastics, which are immune to abuse - no matter whether the instrument is dropped on a steel deck or if the instru- ment is embedded in ice. The measurement of conductivity in frozen water is of limited utility - but the ability to withstand frozen in periods is just another part of RBR?s design philosophy. RBR?s C.T.D package consists of connectors that are easily handled with gloves, cables that are standard issue, batteries that can be purchased anywhere in the world, and a conductivity sensor that can withstand freezing. You can rely on RBR for Polar deploy- ments. Fluid Imaging FlowCAM FlowCAM detects and measures marine plankton and particles in a continuous ß uid ß ow. Scientists, researchers and technicians obtain size, shape, ß uorescence and concentration statistics in a fraction of the time required by traditional microscopy. Different particle types in a heterogeneous sample can be automatically identi Þ ed, differentiat- ed and quanti Þ ed. FlowCAM acquires high resolution microscopic images at a very rapid rate, typically up to 10,000 images/minute. Intuitive VisualSpreadsheet analysis software allows the user to sort, Þ lter and clas- sify particle images interactively.
