Our promise to you


Our quality guarantee


We know it can be hard to trust the accuracy of satellite remotely sensed information. Want you to have complete confidence in our product. Our product performance reports (included in Pro or sold seperately) provide complete assurance by comparing your chlorophyll-a and phytoplankton cell count data against our estimates from satellite. If we can’t supply you with accurate information, we’ll give you your money back.


Our product guarantee


We do original research and publish our algorithms and results openly for scrutiny and use by the wider scientific community. This ensures that you get the latest and best technology that is independently peer-reviewed by the scientific community, ensuring truthfulness and reproducibility. Our technology has already been used by many academics, scientists, researchers,  students and lecturers in commercial and research projects around the world.


Our service guarantee


Our online training seminars and technical support will ensure you and your team get the most out of the product.

Why use CyanoLakes?

Show More

Cyanobacteria blooms significantly increase operational risk by increasing water treatment costs and pose a serious human health threat. You can significantly reduce risk from cyanobacteria blooms in raw water sources with near real-time spatial information.


Monitoring remote and large water bodies is logistically challenging, time consuming and expensive. Lab samples take days or weeks to process, and it’s easy to miss events in large reservoirs sampled weekly or monthly. Real-time instruments deployed in lakes are easily lost or vandalised, and drones can be lost and pose a fire hazard.


CyanoLakes offers the first service based entirely on satellite remote sensing that significantly improves your knowledge or your raw water sources, enabling you to effectively respond to the risk posed by cyanobacteria blooms. No expensive instruments, no ground data required. Save costs and more effectively deploy your limited monitoring resources.


Here are three reasons why we think you should use CyanoLakes:

1. Reduce risks from cyanobacteria blooms in your waterbodies

2. Supplement your existing chlorophyll-a and other measurements in near real-time

3. Protect the public with recreational advisories

  • Enhance routine monitoring and reporting
  • Achieve compliance with monitoring legislation
  • Reduce long-term monitoring costs
  • Prevent, detect and manage health risks
  • Improve decision making
  • Improve strategies to manage health risks
  • Improve the health and safety of recreational water users

Service availability


CyanoLakes services are based on satellite remotely sensed data. Satellite coverage and monitoring is dependent on snow cover, cloud cover and water body size (among other things). The latency (delivery time) and availability of data may be interrupted from time to time through scheduled maintenance or unexpected interruptions of satellite transmission. While CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd warrants to provide you with excellent customer support and service, service interruptions may occur due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control. The customer indemnifies and holds CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd and its employees harmless against any loss or damages that may result from service interruption.
