Abstract
A fibre optic, fluorescent toxicity test based on a liquid-core waveguide (LCW) is presented here. By employing the LCW it is possible to set up a small and easy to handle system for measurements of weak fluorescence intensity. The use of specific bacteria as "living sensors" and application of the fluorescent measurement technique allows combination of positive features — synergetic reaction to different pollutants and sensitivity to global pollution -ofthe biological monitoring with an objective measure of the technical monitoring. The results of optimisation analysis of the system construction and testing procedure are here discussed. The fmal purpose of this research is to create a new method of water toxicity measurement for in situ experiments.
