 At booth JPN-11, Satake will co-exhibit and demonstrate both the new Viable Organism Analyser VOA1000K and the Viable Organism Sampler (reference exhibit).

The new analyser has been downsized by 20 percent in weight compared to the previous model introduced in 2014. It is one of the few devices able to directly count the number of organisms, both zooplankton and phytoplankton, as well as both large size (50μm and over) and small size (10μm to under 50μm) organisms. With this new model of Viable Organism Analyser, the staining time of organisms has been shortened from 30 minutes to 15 minutes, which makes Port State Control (PSC) processing easier.

The Viable Organism Sampler can easily concentrate one cubic meter of ballast water for large size organisms (a high survival probability after BWMS treatment) measurement in a short time. A flexible nylon filter is used to suppress damage to living organism. Furthermore, the reliability of the test is assured by changing the nylon filter every time. It is compact, lightweight, no power required, and can be brought easily on board.
