Autonomous Plankton Sampler - fully automated tool to collect plankton in the oceans

Autonomous Plankton Sampler - provides Marine Biologists with a fully automated tool to collect plankton in the oceans, enabling analysis of plankton species distribution and abundance

Chelsea Technologies Group’s Autonomous Plankton Sampler  provides Marine Biologists with a fully automated tool to collect plankton in the oceans, enabling analysis of plankton species distribution and abundance. Plankton sampling provides invaluable insights into numerous aspects of plankton dynamics and ecology including: climate change, biodiversity and biogeography, eutrophication, harmful algal blooms, fisheries investigations, plankton ecology, taxonomy, regime shifts and non-indigenous species.

The Plankton Samplier is ideally suited for use in undulating bodies such as the CTG NuShuttle, to enable discrimination of zooplankton variability with depth. It is designed to operate autonomously, collecting zooplankton samples within a user programmable index advanced filter mesh, for post mission laboratory analysis. It can also be fitted to onboard flow-through systems such as FerryBox type systems.
