In a effort to at furthering the endeavour of creating a computer Model of Moina cultures I wanted to move on to turbidity measurement for Moina cultures. I remember @jaikishan telling me that we already have made a turbidimeter at CUBE.
@jtd Sir please respond to this list of points
I would like to confirm that @jtd and also please give some info on it’s workings.
I would also like to know how much does it costs to make one?
I have a alternative way of measuring turbidity myself so if what we have made isn’t as easy to replicate we can use my method.
I would also like to know what is the least count of your measuring device?
Does it rely on human perception or is it fully autonomous?
My alternative method for turbidity measurement ( Hypothesis Only )
The process I am talking about is very similar to that of doing colorimeter measurement. I would also like to tell that it is more of a hypothesis than a well tested theory.
We use a control of known turbidity and measure luminescence in percentage.
We also know that for 0 turbidity the luminance will be same as it is without a sample (i. E. The luminance measured of the empty container.)
We then plot a graph of these two points and measure luminance for our sample.
We predict it’s turbidity using the graph.
Note: All luminisance measurements will be taken by keeping light source at one end of the sample and the mobile at the other end.
