Does anyone know of any test method or test kit for early detection and quantification of algae growth in water ?

I know that ATP is an excellent indicator for bacterial cell growth; however, when attempting to identify the type of algae, it becomes problematic.

That is the advantage, as I see it, that microLAN has. It is able to actually ID a particular species grouping. The key is not in knowing that cells are growing, but in knowing the type of cells.

Which test kit would you advice?
