Discover revolutionary underwater measurement technology by PyroScience
Since becoming commercially available at the end of last year, the new AquapHOx Underwater Loggers by PyroScience, a new generation of all-in-one flexible testing platforms for deep-sea and shallow waters, have gained significant interest from the ocean research community.
After winning the Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPrize in 2014, PyroScience committed to developing underwater testing systems universally applicable for different types of research, including ocean acidification, environmental monitoring, coastal marine biology, aquaculture (coming soon!), water column/sediment profiling, and many more.
Among unique product features not previously available in existing oceanography instruments on the market, AquapHOx Optical Systems offer high-resolution/low drift pH sensors as well as ultra-trace and ultra-high-speed oxygen sensors.
AquapHOx loggers have been tested extensively in diverse coastal habitats worldwide, including coastal water (North Sea, Adriatic Sea), a reef flat of the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, and bivalves growing in oligotrophic seas (Eastern Mediterranean, Israel).
AquapHOx provides fast, reliable, and robust measurements of critical parameters, like oxygen, pH, and temperature on moorings in open sea/coastal sites and fixed platforms alike. There are several long-term research projects currently in motion. We look forward to sharing the results with the community in the future.
